Calvert Grade 1 English Language Arts

This course continues to build on and add to the foundational skills students learned in kindergarten through daily learning. Over the course of the year, students will develop a fuller range of phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and fluency skills. Students will think critically about authentic texts and begin to practice writing to communicate their thoughts. During the course, students will practice narrative, informational, and persuasive writing. Project-based activities include writing a narrative about their favorite day and creating a persuasive poster about their favorite treat.
