Language Update - Tr. Fatima

Dear Parents,

Over the next weeks in sh'Allah, your child will be studying various topics in Language Arts:

For writing your child will begin to: generate, gather, and organize ideas and information to write for an intended purpose and audience (Journal Writing).
Spelling: Writing out familiar and unfamiliar vocabulary words. (looking specifically at short /a/ and short /o/ sounds).

Eventually, sometime this week or next - there will be explicit lessons for writing (Journal Writing - including topic sentences, supporting information etc..)

For Reading: What is reading? Why do we read? Is there only one way of reading? What are the different types of text people can read and for what purpose?
