    First Nine Weeks

    English Language Arts                                                    
     For the 1st nine weeks, our theme will be "Building a Reading and Writing Community." We will be using text evidence to support what the text says. We will also be establishing good writing procedures and reviewing the writing process. Different types of genres will be introduced along with inferring, predicting and choosing appropriately leveled text.
      In writing we will review grammar and the different types of editing marks. They will be able to write short pieces using the correct organization and style that is appropriate to the specific task given.

         Reading is a very important part of my classroom. Students are required to bring a book to class each day and be ready to discuss or write about it at any given time. They will not be required to keep a reading log, but I will strongly encourage them to read at home. Each nine weeks, they will be required to read a certain number of books from different genres. A.R. tests are available for them to take, but do not count as a grade.
