Language Arts skills focus on the 5 components of Reading! Phonemic Awareness & Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency & Comprehension
In 3rd grade we work hard on becoming fluent readers: reading with an appropriate RATE of speed while understanding what you are reading, sounding like story-telling! Our goal is: 100 words read correctly in 1 minute by the end of third grade!
Work coming home should reflect skill building in these areas of Language Arts growth: Reading for meaning, Writing with accurate expression, spelling & grammar, Identifying elements of text. We focus on developing as confident readers who read and understand, reflect on the text, and demonstrate the skills we are learning through written expression or speech.
