Reading, Language Arts and Writing
K12Kidz reading and language arts titles meet and exceed the requirements of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) for the Standards of English Language Arts. In addition, the reading titles address the core reading skills identified by the National Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, comprehension, and fluency. Each reading title consists of four units: reviews, word analysis, comprehension, and literary skills. In the language arts titles, students learn to identify and correctly use nouns, verbs, modifiers, and the other parts of speech. They also learn the importance of sentence construction and identifying sentence parts including simple and complex subjects and predicates, verbs, and phrases as well as capitalization and punctuation guidelines.
The writing titles emphasize six aspects of writing including ideas, organization, voice, word choice, fluency, and conventions. Students will learn a variety of writing formats that include personal narratives, journals, newspaper writing, and descriptive writing. The literature lessons provide a broad exposure to literature, enabling the student to acquire the necessary skills to understand and appreciate literature by exploring universal themes through study guides and later in the questions on literary terms, devices, and forms.
