Elementary Language Arts 
Elementary Language Arts are taught through a balanced approach which includes instruction  in reading, writing, working with words and application of what was taught through independent, self-selected reading.  Students are encouraged to read each night, to build fluency and to foster a love for reading.  Students are taught decoding and comprehension strategies to preview, predict, make inferences and connections and then to summarize, question and evaluate text. Students read a balance of nonfiction and fiction as well as poems, plays and speeches.
