Students read a excerpt every week together, taking turns reading paragraphs and sentences. They then answer comprehension questions together, with an accompanying explanation on how to answer it efficiently.
All students learn challenging vocabulary every week with sentence and picture examples. They then play games and activities using the vocabulary they just learned. Every class starts with a spelling revision quiz testing last week's list of words.
Students learn how to write all sorts of writing styles, such as narratives, persuasives, news articles and descriptive writing. Writing is set as homework, and feedback is given at the end of class every week.
