4th Grade Language Arts - Spencer Crossing
This year, we are utilizing the ReadyGen curriculum. Below are the characteristics of our new curriculum.
*Trade books offer authentic, rigorous interactions with text.
*ReadyGen uses a generative approach to vocabulary instruction. Words are taught in clusters, with a focus on key words that are critical to understanding the text.
*At the heart of ReadyGen is the mutual exchange between reading and writing. Students write to sources and cite evidence, developing close reading habits. They write in different modes, including Informative, Narrative, and Opinion writing.
*Spelling curriculum focuses on spelling patterns. Students will have weekly spelling homework (Word Anyalysis Workbook) and will be assessed weekly on these words.
*Silent reading book is needed for class every day.
