Language Arts' components include grammar, cursive handwriting, writing, spelling, and reading. All of the components are integrated into our class. While students are given a few minutes of daily independent reading time in class, they are also expected to read at home nightly to ensure they meet their nine weeks' AR goal. Students are also required to complete a project on one AR book each nine weeks. Project guidelines and due dates can be found in student binders. Spelling tests are given weekly, but students do not have weekly spelling homework. Be sure to check your child's planner regularly to stay abreast of current topics and homework assignments.
