Most classrooms have only a little time to spend working on grammar which is a building block of written and spoken language. Our program encourages children to learn all the basics of grammar and build on any writing mechanics they have already absorbed.
In writing, our curriculum is split into several units based on the types of writing that we will cover. Students will learn how to write personal narratives, descriptive writing, how-to articles, persuasive writing, expository writing, as well as creative writing. We always find fun projects with real-life situations to incorporate every writing style and encourage students to be more effective writers. We help our students see how writing can be usable, practical, and quite enjoyable when they know how to do it well!
Our reading comprehension curriculum focuses on teaching children to read both fiction and non-fiction passages and then answer comprehension questions. We provide students the tools to tackle the new common core aligned standards, decode passages, find the main idea, and comprehend the underlying meaning.
The vocabulary portion teaches students not only new words, but new meanings to words with which they already are familiar. There is an element in each lesson that allows the student to see the words in action and to use them in answering comprehension questions as well.
