Reading is everywhere! In order for students to succeed in life, they need to know how to read and comprehend a variety of texts. We will work hard this year to ensure this happens. It is a partnership and I will need your support. Together we CAN make a difference.
The English Language Arts and Reading Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) are organized into the following strands:
* Reading - students read and understand a wide variety of literary and
* Writing - students compose a variety of written texts with a clear controlling
idea, coherent organization, and sufficient detail
* Research - students learn how to locate a range of relevant sources; evaluate,
synthesize, and present ideas and information
* Listening and Speaking - students listen and respond to the ideas of others
while contributing their own ideas in conversations and groups
* Oral and Written Conventions - students learn how to use the oral and written
conventions of the English language in speaking and writing
We will also be using the Renaissance Accelerated Reading Program and we will work together to find books that interest your child to ensure success.
