In Language Arts, students will not only read great books written by wonderful authors, they will become amazing authors during writing time!  The students will work on the Keys to Comprehension which include:  clarifying, making connections, visualizing, questioning, predicting, inferencing, determining importance, synthesizing, and summarizing.  Students will be working on reading independently to build comprehension and fluency.  They will review and be introduced to words that will expand their vocabulary.  The writing workshop will teach students how to write with voice, correct grammar, and expanding their ideas.  By the end of the year they will be awesome authors!
