Language Arts Activities for the Primary Grades is designed to provide the teacher in grades 1st through 3rd with activities that will help to ensure that all students are knowledgeable and proficient users of language. This course will give the teacher a resource to help students develop language skills while engaging them in activities that provide practice in spelling, alphabetizing, word usage, synonyms, antonyms, capitalization, punctuation, syllabication, and proofreading. The activities are grounded in what is known about language and how it is learned. The goal is to provide different experiences that are flexible, promote social interaction, and allow the student to demonstrate and apply knowledge of language structure and conventions (e.g., spelling and punctuation). The activities will allow the teacher to become aware of and responsive to the needs of the students while they are implementing activities that encourage students to participate as knowledgeable, creative, and reflective members of a learning community. The activities are useful for introducing new skills and concepts as well as preparing students for achievement testing. Teachers will be using a variety of game-type formats that can be easily adapted for different achievement levels and language skill areas. The activities are designed for use with the whole class, small and large groups, or as individual assignments. Many of the activities are also appropriate for use in peer and cross-age tutoring situations and as homework assignments to encourage parental involvement. The teacher page for each activity offers suggestions for adaptations and integration ideas in other subject areas. The concepts and skills presented in this course are aligned with national, state, and local guidelines, which makes the lessons easily infused into existing language programs.
