The BASIC WRITING FOR THE 4th GRADE is a small group class that provides instruction aligned with the California's Common Core State Standards in the following areas:
Active Reading (Reading Comprehension): Students will read and understand 4-6 novels, refer to examples when drawing inferences, determine a theme, summarize, and describe in depth a character, setting, or event in the novel while drawing on specific details (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions) and figurative language (e.g., simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification).
Essay Development (Writing): Students will be writing multi-paragraph essays that provide an introductory paragraph, introduce a central idea clearly with a topic sentence, include supporting paragraphs with concrete details and examples, link ideas using words and phrases (e.g., for instance, in order to, for example, also) and conclude with a paragraph that summarizes the points. Students will be practicing the three writing genres (opinion pieces, informative texts and narratives).
Vocabulary Acquisition: Students will integrate knowledge of individual words to enhance their writing, apply knowledge of word origins, derivations, synonyms, antonyms, and distinguish and interpret words with multiple meanings.
Grammar: For the grammar module of the class, students will learn to identify and use regular and irregular verbs, adverbs, prepositions, coordinating conjunctions, participial and prepositional phrases.
CAASPP test preparation will be integrated to formally prepare students specifically emphasizing the areas of reading comprehension, sentence structure, writing strategies and vocabulary. Some book purchases will be necessary. Students can expect homework and weekly quizzes. Grades will be given.
