Language Arts with Lyn Stone (St Monica's Wodonga)
Ages and Stages
The Language Arts scope and sequence is intended to deliver an integrated approach to morphology, spelling & handwriting, and grammar & syntax.
Each year level is split into a number of weeks of focus activities in the three domains.It is advisable to consult each domain before planning that week’s lessons.
There will be the inevitable occasion when children need to catch up on the core knowledge presented in the Language Arts continuum in order to progress at their grade level.
This may be due to prolonged absence, being new at the school or in need of more intensive support.
A possible solution is to have a Tier 2 unit dedicated to catching up, containing small groups of children with similar knowledge gaps
