English Language Arts K focuses on building reading skills through the use of high-frequency sight words—common prepositions, nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Through grade-level appropriate readings, students explore story elements and the ways in which pictures relate to text. They also learn to summarize a text and to compare and contrast characters, events, and ideas within texts. This course teaches foundational grammar and writing skills, including proper capitalization, spacing between words, and sentence punctuation.
