We will also complete a reading review unit in preparation for the MCA reading test in the spring. The writing component will focus on various small assignments throughout the year and a few multi-draft, larger assignments: a narrative, a comparative analysis, and creative writing. The sentence skills will include parts of the sentence, clauses and phrases, and complete sentences. Vocabulary and speaking skills will also be practiced. The speech will be a collaborative assignment between language arts and social studies.
