Hawthorne Elementary School

Gr 5 REACH Language Arts

Students who require further language arts enrichment, outside of that already provided in the classroom, may work with Mrs. Sorrentino in a pull-out group daily during acceleration time, 1:25-1:55. They will actively discuss and analyze text which correspond to the common core skills at their grade level and above. Some highlights throughout the year may include the following activities:

  • Exploring social justice and how the encounters between cultures can lead to injustice.
  • Discovering what happens when belief systems of societies and individuals come into conflict.
  • Examining multiple perspectives to help understand conflict and promote cooperation and/or conflict resolution.
  • Investigating how art is universal to all and what artists contribute to society to inspire future generations.

All readings will lead to rich writing, discussions, and debates with something for everyone!
