Course Description:
The emergent reader will begin to become a fluent reader throughout this course. The student will read and write daily, practice new skills, and uncover the patterns that are the foundations of words, sentences, and stories. The student will apply new skills to read and understand fiction and nonfiction stories presented in Scott Foresman's -Reading Street- series. Stories are organized into themes such as "Communities" and "Animals, Tame and Wild." Examining literature through themes helps the student to make connections between texts and to connect reading topics to personal knowledge and interests. The student will also read -Ira Sleeps Over-, a fun book about a child's first sleep over. Reading instruction includes sound manipulation, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. The student will also read short, decodable readers that are linked and printable from the student's lesson page. In addition to formal reading instruction, the student will have the opportunity to complete engaging extension activities. As the student learns to read, he will also learn to write. The student's vocabulary will grow through discussions of ideas and opinions. Listening and speaking will help the student learn grammar skills and correct sentence and story construction. Guided instruction and practice in Zaner-Bloser's -Handwriting- will teach the student proper manuscript technique. Spelling instruction correlates to the phonics skills taught through the student's stories. Language skills and handwriting come together as the student composes journal entries and writes pieces of increasing length and complexity.
