•  Grammar
    Students will receive grammar-focused mini-lessons throughout the year during our Writing Workshop. Mini-lessons will introduce the skill, provide examples to the students, and give students the opportunity to practice the skill on their own in the context of their writing. Students' writing will be scored for grammar based on the Focus Correction Area(s) for each writing assignment. As students master foundational aspects of standard English, students may receive more targeted instruction in small group settings and on individual bases.
    Grammatical skills covered this year will include:
    • Capitalization
    • Parts of a Sentence
    • Apostrophes
    • Commas 
    • Fragments
    • Homophones
    • Subject/Verb Disagreement
    • Verb Tense Consistency
    • Commonly Confused Words
