    Skills

    Using CKLA curriculum, we will strengthen previously learned skills and build on that knowledge using science of reading methods to help students grow in reading and writing abilities. We began the year with review of common spellings for sounds. We are continuing to review consonant blends, r-controlled vowels, doubled letters, and spelling two syllable words with short vowels. We have began reviewing alternate spellings for sounds (i.e. /j/ can be spelled 'j', 'g', 'ge, while /s/ can be spelled 's', 'ss', 'c').

    *CKLA is a sound based curriculum developed using science of reading

     

    Reading and Content Knowledge

    Within each reading unit, there is a content knowledge topic. These topics include vocabulary, science, and social studies content.

    Science

    Science and social studies are embedded in the content knowledge of the reading units in CKLA. Students will further explore science and social studies content during stations.
