Teacher: Tiffany Hopkins
Class Description: We will prepare our students for higher-level literary concepts as we read through a variety of literature including historical fiction, international selections, classic literature, and informational text. Using the text we will focus on “words to watch for”, story or poem themes, character themes, literary type, background information, vocabulary enrichment, interesting facts, and more! We will also focus on words chosen from lists of most frequently used words, sight words, and words with particular phonetic or rhyming patterns. This will help students to learn consonant blends, digraphs, long and short vowel sounds, plurals, prefixes, suffixes, contractions, multi-syllable words, compound words, homonyms, irregular verb tenses, and more.
