Course Description:
The student will continue to develop into a fluent reader as he encounters increasingly complex texts. He will read daily, practicing new skills and understanding the phonics patterns. 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 "Exploration," "Working Together," and "Creative Ideas." Examining literature through themes helps the student make connections between the texts and connect reading topics to his personal knowledge and interests. The student will also read short, decodable readers that are linked and printable from the student's lesson page. Formal reading instruction includes all parts of the reading process, including phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. As the student learns to read, he also learns to write. Writing lessons target grammar skills and teach the writing process. Frequently, writing instruction is tied to the student's reading assignments. Guided instruction and practice in -Zaner-Bloser --Handwriting -reinforce manuscript printing and encourage greater speed and accuracy in writing. Daily spelling instruction and practice correlate with taught phonics skills. Language skills and handwriting come together as the student composes journal entries and writing pieces of increasing length and complexity.
