     Reading:

     Schoolwide Reading Fundamentals encompasses a balanced literacy framework via the reading workshop model.  The units of study enhance the students' experiences to develop and expand basic reading skills while students make meaning of and interact with text.  Within each unit of study there will be opportunities to use mentor texts, shared texts and leveled texts for independent reading practice.  

     

    Writing:
    Schoolwide Writing Fundamentals provides explicit writing instruction that focuses on demonstrating why and how writers communicate their ideas. Using a Writers' Workshop approach students will study a variety of writing types via the Units of Study.   Quality literature will showcase effective writing techniques to provide students with an authentic experiences as they sharpen their writing skills.  
     
    Grammar:

    Basic grammar, usage and mechanics will be explored utilizing the Schoolwide Fundamentals of Grammar and Conventions.  Units of study will use mentor text and quality literature to showcase how grammar and conventions work in context.
