Language Arts

In reading, your child will learn character, setting, and plot, (beginning, middle, end) in fictional text. They will learn to find the main idea and details in informational text. Your child will also learn to write a summary after reading different types of texts.

In writing, your child is using the 5 square writing format. They will be taught to write a main idea sentence, three detail sentences, and a conclusion sentence. These sentences will be written into a paragraph. By the end of the year, they will add 3 supporting detail sentences to the paragraph.

Your child should put capitals and punctuation in the correct places. They should also start each sentence with a different word to make their writing more interesting.
