The goal of this 4th grade ELA class is to not only improve studentsí ELA skills in the short term, but also introduce strong reading strategies and habits that will help studentsí skills improve for years to come. The goal is also to ensure students perform to the best of their abilities on the State Exam.

Each student will finish the course with a reliable and well-developed foundation to build off in the ELA subject area. The course will tackle fiction reading, non-fiction reading, figurative language, active reading, a few ELA test-taking strategies, basic grammar, analyzing text and more. The class will also provide test prep for the 4th grade NY State Exams. Scores on these exams can be very important for students looking to gain acceptance to new Middle Schools.

Much of class and homework will involve reading and responding to text (age and grade appropriate material). Digesting complex text is an invaluable skill in both high school and college. Building strong focus and mental stamina at this age will benefit your child immensely in the years to come.

The course will focus mostly on reading comprehension and writing with a very small amount of grammar.

Students can expect 30 minutes to 1 hour of homework each week.
HOMEWORK Get homework for Oct 19th
