Language Arts 4
Throughout the course, students are exposed to a wide array of fiction and nonfiction as they develop and apply their comprehension skills. They develop the tools to understand vocabulary presented through a variety of reading material and have the opportunity to read independently, as well as to create projects in response to self-selected books. After reviewing the five stages of the writing process, students create well-organized compositions aided by effective planning tools. The basic skills of writing are reinforced with instruction in spelling, handwriting, grammar, and language usage. Daily spelling activities give students opportunities to use spelling words in context.
