Language Arts includes many different areas and we will be working on all of them in fourth grade. We will read stories from several different genres, learn new vocabulary, work on your comprehension skills, and practice reading with expression. All your grammar skills will be put to good use when you write creatively. A personal narrative and imaginative nonfiction are examples of the types of writing you will be doing this year. You will learn the five steps of the writing process to help you complete your stories.
