Students will use listening and speaking skills to participate in classroom discussions.
Students will use a variety of strategies to read new words and will read familiar selections with fluency and expression.
Students will continue to develop an understanding of character, setting, main idea, and story sequence in a variety of texts.
Students will increase vocabulary and comprehension strategies by reading age-appropriate materials across the curriculum, with emphasis on materials that reflect the State and School District Learnings in mathematics, science, and social studies.
