This year we will study grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing and focus on how all four of these studies are related. We use Vocabulary Workshop books to improve our vocabulary skills and the Voyages in English to perfect our grammar. We will be reading novels, like
The Giver by Lois Lowry to see the English language in action. Our writing will incorporate all aspects of Language Arts, whether we are doing a literary analysis of a novel, or writing a personal narrative about our life. This class will prepare each student to not only be successful in future English classes, but lessons learned in this class will carry over into other classes as well.
