Language Arts Curriculum integrates reading, writing, spelling, speaking and listening skills. In the early years, phonics and handwriting are included in the curriculum. These skills are incorporated into other areas, such as science and social studies.
Daily 5 is also integrated in the Language Arts curriculum. Daily 5 is a framework that encourages reading independence and gives the students the skills needed to create a lifetime love of reading and writing. Students read and work on skills at their own levels.
