Language Arts

English Language Arts: Journeys is a K–6 comprehensive, research-based English Language Arts program built on the foundation of the proven Journeys instructional design that provides all students with a path to achieving rigorous standards with print and state-of-the-art digital components. Students are empowered by skill mastery, inspired by authentic, award-winning text, and are confident—confident in their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, confident in their ability to analyze complex text, and confident that they are building the skills they need for college and careers.

In addition to Journeys instruction students will participate in:

Independent Reading: Students read “just-right books”, (books they can read independently) they have chosen from our classroom library or guided reading books that the teacher has selected to support the child in their next level of learning. 

Partner Reading: Two students read together and discuss their reading.

Share: The whole class meets to share a strategy they used in their reading or their thinking about their Reading.
