Course Description:

Throughout the year, students will complete work in the areas of reading, grammar, and vocabulary. We will read a variety of novels, short stories, poems, informational texts, and more! All reading material will have vocabulary words associated with it. For writing, three major writing assignments will be completed this year, including a narrative piece, an informational piece, and an argumentative essay, in addition to other shorter writing assignments for different units of study. Students will also complete various projects throughout the course of the year for different reading units, including comic strips, poems, and various artistic pieces.

Additionally, one of my main goals is to instill a love for reading in each of my students. They will be required to read a certain amount of independent novels by the end of the year, covering multiple genres. I have over 600 books in my library (my pride and joy), so I am confident that every student will be able to find a book they love!
