    Hello and welcome to Language Arts Literacy.

    I am looking forward to a wonderful year with all of my students. In Language Arts Literacy, we will be exploring A.C.T.I.V.E. Reading Strategies, 6 + 1 Writing Traits, short stories, novels, picture books, and a variety of writing forms which include descriptive, narrative, persuasive and expository writing. We will work on expanding vocabulary, developing active listening and speaking abilities. We will be using different technology sources along the way. I am hoping that we will have fun as we learn and grow from our time together.

    Homework Assignments, Projects, Tests and Quiz Dates will be posted on this website under Homework. If you should need another copy of the assignment that was handed out in class, you can download it from this School Wires website.  The assignment can be found under its heading or in the marking period in which it is assigned.  For example, Weekly Language Practice sheets can be found under the Weekly Language Practice tab on the left of this page.  A literature prompt or set of questions would be found under the marking period tab on the left. The calendar shows the dates of the assignments as well.
