Language Arts

Students have Language Arts every day. We use a core reading program in each grade.  Grade 5 (as well as grades K - 4) uses the Fountas and Pinnell framework, and grades 6 - 8 use the Glencoe Literature program. Reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary instruction is coordinated not only between the language arts teachers, but also with social studies and science teachers.  Our school adopted the Lucy Calkins Units of Instruction as the primary resource for our writing program. For students who require additional instruction in reading, we offer a decoding program, SRA, during Schooner Time to provide the necessary additional instruction. For those who need additional comprehension support, we offer a Reading Comprehension Lab. We also have a Writing Lab that supports a limited number of students.
