English Language Arts

Course Description:

In Grade 4 Language Arts, students will select letter patterns and know how to translate them into spoken language by using phonics, syllabication, and word parts. They will employ comprehension strategies when reading grade-level-appropriate narrative and expository text, such as classic and contemporary literature, magazines, newspapers, and online information. Students will distinguish between the structural features of the text and literary terms and elements. Students will write compositions that describe and explain familiar objects, events, and experiences; this writing will demonstrate a command of standard American English, as well as drafting, research, and organizational strategies. Additionally, students will deliver brief recitations and oral presentations about familiar experiences or interests that are organized around a coherent thesis statement.
