**Students are expected to read at least 60 minutes every day. AR points are calculated according to this expectation and each student's personal reading level according to the STAR assessment.
The ELA curriculum integrates vocabulary, several reading genres, and writing pieces. We will use an interactive notebook (INB) to facilitate our studies in both reading and writing.
Books we will read throughout the year:
The Watsons go to Birmingham
*African American History Month. We will watch the movie as a culmination and complete a writing piece comparing the book and movie.
