Language Arts: Students study fiction, non-fiction, poetry, fables and more during the school year.  They learn the parts of speech and practice their language skills by writing sentences, paragraphs, essays, and short stories.  Students further develop their writing and reading dexterity by completing research projects.  Students use their spelling and vocabulary words in all writing assignments.

Our Language-Arts program includes reading, phonics, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, handwriting, creative writing, and public speaking.
