Language Arts

Reading and Language

We are excited to continue working with the Pearson language arts series this year.  The link is below.  The students will be receiving a login and password to use the personalized site at home and at school.  The common core standards that have been adopted in most of the states are included in the series.  These standards are asking that the students read independently more, read more complex texts, and read more informational texts.  There will be a major focus on the thought process while reading and connecting these thoughts to other parts of the student's lives.

We will also be using the Accelerated Reader program.  The students will be given individual goals and reading levels.  They will read books at their level and take a computer test over the book to earn credit for reading that text.

Spelling pretests will be on Mondays and posttests on Fridays.  The students will need to write the words they missed on Monday.  If they get the first 15 and the 5 challenge words correct on Monday I will assign 10 amazing words as their new list.
