Language Arts Curriculum Grades 4 - 5
Students in grade 4 and 5 continue to experience daily instruction in the Readers and Writers Workshop, a research-based reading and writing program that incorporates differentiated instruction and the establishment of student independence in reading and writing.  Students develop and strengthen reading skills and strategies through independent and group reading of fiction and nonfiction.  We encourage students to be reflective about their reading and writing and to set goals for those areas as well.  Teachers assess student reading and writing through research-based reading and writing progressions.  In addition, students receive blocks of word-work in vocabulary and language foundations.
