Worksheets By Grade Level
All of our work is leveled by grade. We pride ourselves on being able to provide students with accurate tasks and practice for the exact skills they will be required to complete on assessments. This curriculum is aligns with the national standards and framework. The flow of topics promotes a layered approach to learning. As you advance through the grade levels you will also note that students are often taught in a spiral fashion that leads to a more concrete learning process.
Kindergarten – Kindergartners
start with basic phonics and vocabulary activities. They then progress
on to listening and reading short passages for comprehension and understanding.
Grade 1 – We work mostly on pre-reading
skills at this level. We start to introduce language skills that require repetition. This is a really good time to students invested in using study skills.
Grade 2 – Reading really takes leaps and bounds at this level. We go from reading simple sentences
to comparing and contrasting two lengthy passages. Students should be working towards reading endurance.
Grade 3 – We take the next step.
Reading does really take a jump up at this level. I feel that the progression in required vocabulary rises significantly at this level shift.
Grade 4 – This is the level where
readers really start to struggle as we add advanced phonics and have students focus on their reading
stamina. Students start to work on grammar skills as well as writing styles.
Grade 5 – This is where we start to understand how to validate our answers with quotes and references. There is a good deal of effort set towards understanding what we write and why we write it.
Grade 6 – We start to use more formal forms of language and our reading levels jump leaps and bounds. Learners, at this point, are preparing to enter secondary school and the work reeflects that.
Grade 7 – The language section
gets a bit difficult for weak writers. Remind students that strong readers almost always become strong writers.
Grade 8 – This level requires deep
thinking before writing and reading. Self evaluation and reflection is a critical aspect of this grade level. This is the first time students are asked to this self evaluate themselves.
Grade 9-10 – For some reason
the curriculum commitee lumped the high school grades together in
pairs. The secondary level has a wide variation of what works of literature they focus on from State to State and even within regions of individual States themselves.
