Language Arts

This is a fun and exciting time for students to learn to read!  This year we will be using the Superkids reading curriculum and Guiding Readers resources to grow as readers and writers while we master the Minnesota Language Arts Standards.

All students will be engaged in reading and writing in whole class, small group and individual activities every day.  I use a reading workshop model called Daily 5 to help all students grow as readers and writers.  

The following explains the components of Daily 5:

Work with the Teacher:  Students work with me in a small group or individually on reading strategies and skills.

Read to Self:  Students read books from their book box.  This means reading the pictures, retelling stories and reading the words.  Students choose new books from my classroom library every day.

Work with Words:  Students work on sight word or phonics activities.

Work on Writing:  Students write a response to literature or write in their Superkids journal.  This means drawing pictures and writing the sounds we hear.  (Kindergarten or Kid spelling)

Listen to Reading:  Students listen and follow along to books on the mini-computers or Ipads in the classroom.
