This is a Language Arts/Novel Study class for students in grades 2nd to 4th. This is perfect for homeschool students looking to start novel studies and improve writing skills. Each book will take 4 weeks to read and analyze. See below for how the class will be structured. All students will be provided PDF versions of the books and any worksheets that they need for the class. -Week One - We will begin reading the The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling. The students will be assigned...
1. Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of the novel. 2. Describe the characters in the stories and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events. 3. Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distinguishing literal from nonliteral language. 4. Distinguish their own point of view from that of the narrator or those of the characters. 5. Write informative texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly. 6. With guidance and support, produce writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task and purpose and are within their grade level. 7. Use technology to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with their peers.
Most of the worksheets can be done digitally. If you would prefer to print and scan, you will need access to a printer and the Adobe Scan App.
For written assignments, a rubric will be be provided. All teacher comments will be given on the rubric as well as an individualized video for each student. For Discussion posts, the teacher will reply to each student.
