Teacher: Sarah Oden
Description: This combination class is sure to get the creative juices flowing.  As students read novels from various genres, they will begin to look for common characteristics.  What makes a “good story”?  What literary elements does an author use? We will explore these topics as well as build comprehension skills through reading a variety of nonfiction articles. Students will become proficient in the writing process as they practice writing a variety of age-appropriate genres including creative, narrative and expository.  Games and activities will be used to introduce new skills including prewriting exercises, sentence structure, proper paragraph form, adding descriptive detail and self-editing.  Rubrics will be used for grading.  Students will have opportunities to collaborate in class presentations. 
Grammar usage and mechanics will be incorporated as well as a study on the parts of speech.  Games and mini-lessons will be used to introduce concepts in bite-size pieces.  The goal for this class is to encourage a love for reading and to build knowledge and confidence for budding authors!
