Language Arts & Literature 4

 

In this language arts course, beautiful literature selections, detailed writing instruction, and a thorough grammar study deepens the fourth graders’ appreciation of good books and hones their writing skills.  Uplifting novels such as Heidi and The Princess and the Goblin provide the fourth graders with inspiring themes and virtuous characters, while historical fiction works like The Door in the Wall and The Apple and the Arrow enhance what the children are learning in their history studies. Classic poems are analyzed, memorized, and recited. In addition, students are guided through each step of the writing process while they compose a variety of compositions including expository, descriptive, biographical, and narrative.
