Elementary Education:  Language Arts Curriculum


Language Arts

The McGraw-Hill Reading Wonders Program combines the five essential components of a scientifically research-based reading program. These components include: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. In addition, students receive instruction in the areas of speaking, listening, and multiple literacies. 

Children are provided a variety of experiences to promote reading success. Teachers work with students in small groups and individually, in addition to whole class and work station experiences. 

The writing curriculum includes a balance between grammar, mechanics, and spelling while using the writing process to express ideas. Teachers utilize a writing workshop model with an emphasis on student choice, writing in a variety of modes, and the six traits to help students improve their written language. 

Direct instruction in handwriting is given using the Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Program. Cursive writing is formally introduced in third grade.
