Language Arts Overview
- Reading—Reading from a wide variety of authors and genres of story collections gives your students insight into their world and inspires them with Christian ideals and spiritual values. Watch their reading comprehension and vocabulary take a leap with the added emphasis on reading speed and comprehension skills.
- Grammar and Composition—You will be thrilled to see your fourth graders become more comfortable with correct grammar in conversation and composition.
- Spelling, Vocabulary, and Poetry—A straightforward teach/practice/test approach makes spelling “second nature” to your young writers. They will also learn to spell, define, and use 5–10 vocabulary words in each lesson; and what an accomplishment when they can recite from memory all 6 poems!
- Penmanship—Daily penmanship practice begins with a review of cursive letter formation and then graduates into creative writing and journal entries.
