Curriculum

English Language Arts is a class designed for elementary schoolers in grades 4-5 and will focus on developing kids’ writing and reading skills. Students will be learning new styles of writing every class after reading example passages. In addition, we will teach students essential grammar rules, read passages of diverse writing styles, answer questions, and assign a paragraph to write for homework. Instructors will read students’ writing thoroughly to give students detailed grading and personalized feedback. Furthermore, we will use some ACT/SAT practice test bank questions that grade 4-5 students can do to practice our grammar and reading skills.

Topics: Sentence Structure; Conjunctions; Subjects, Verbs, and Adjectives; Capitalization Rules; Poems (Haiku); Nonfiction, Fiction, Informative, and Argumentative Reading and Writing; and more!

Prerequisite: Student should have approached, met, or exceeded standard in English at their regular school in the previous school year.

Materials:

  • Computer 

  • Writing notebook and pencils
