The Elementary English Language Arts Grade One course provides students with foundational reading skills, reading comprehension strategies, writing and grammar skills, and speaking and listening skills. Students will learn how to use the basic sounds for consonants, long and short vowel sounds, digraphs, blends, and r-controlled vowels to decode and encode words when reading and writing. Students will also learn how to use reading comprehension strategies to better understand literature and informative texts. Students will be taught grammar skills, such as singular and plural nouns; past, future, and present tense verbs; adjectives; pronouns; prepositions; prefixes; and suffixes. Students will participate in planning, writing, editing, revising, and publishing informative, narrative, and opinion writing compositions throughout the course.
