3rd Period Language Arts
A HAWK ALWAYS READS!
Welcome to Mrs. Magruder's First Period Language Arts Class!
Language Arts this year is an integration of the following subject areas: Reading, Writing, Grammar, Spelling, and Word Study. As we study four different curriculum units during the year, we will read from a wide variety of texts. In writing we will focus on different types of writing such as: descriptive, expository, narrative, persuasive, research, and creative writing. We will look at the six traits of writing and publish finished works, in a variety of ways. Students will be challenged as they study words in order to compete in three WordMaster Challenges during the year. Students will also study a list of words as they prepare for the School-wide Spelling Bee.
