Language Arts Update

The first quarter is coming to an end.  In reading, we have focused on choosing books at each child's own level, building stamina to read and concentrate for longer periods of time and analyzing fiction.  In writing, we have learned how to generate ideas, add sensory details and the important elements of a personal narrative.  Our focus in word work has been on reviewing the syllable types and how to spell words with suffixes.  We will continue to build on all of these skills in the next quarter.
