What will I be learning this year in Language Arts?  

Some students are nervous at the beginning of the year to get back into reading and writing, but don't worry, it will be fine!  Just remember that participation and completing your assignments are the keys to being successful in Language Arts. 

This year we will be focusing on non-fiction, fiction and fantasy, poetry, myths, fables, legends, tall tales, improving and publishing your writing, and of course, vocabulary and spelling.   
We will be exploring many types of literature including novels from each genre, short stories, poems, and myths.  Students will also be required to participate in projects and presentations.
emember that books from home are welcome!  If you have a book that you would like to read during Tiger Time or you would like the class to read during Language Arts, bring it in, I'll check it out, but make sure it's okay with your parents first.
