Language Arts 

      During the months of February and March students will be reading one of two books:

            1. "Bud, not Buddy," by Christopher Paul Curtis

            2.  "Accidental Love," by Gary Soto

           During class students will  engage in Literature Circles. Literature circles consist of four components: pre-           discussion, discussion, end of discussion activity, and some form of assessment. Students will work in                  groups in order to gain comprehension in the following areas; context clues, inference, cause and effect              and more.


          During writing students will participate in writer's workshop. Writers workshop is a teaching strategy                    where the teacher models the writing process through a mini-lesson targeting a specific topic or  genre.              Directly after the mini-lesson students are asked to apply what they learned.

           Students will also engage in shared writings where the teacher and class work together to complete a                       writing. Students may also write with a partner in order to share ideas and writing techniques. genres or strategies will be covered during writing: Narrative, Persuasive, Expository, dialogue               action with internal thought, setting, structure, and voice.
