Elementary 2 - English Language Arts

In Elementary 2, students will develop advanced literacy skills, including writing, reading comprehension, and critical thinking. At 1-2 levels above Ministry Standards, this advanced curriculum prepares students to excel in all subject areas and equips them for the greater demands of junior-high school.

Program Highlights: Our program emphasizes building sophisticated vocabulary, improving grammar skills, and enhancing reading comprehension and critical/analytical writing skills. Students will write clear and coherent sentences and paragraphs, personal and creative pieces, and persuasive and analytical essays. They will explore key literary terms and genres, including irony, point of view/narration, adaptation, autobiography, satire, character, symbolism, imagery, theme, historical fiction, and philosophical fiction. Key terms and concepts are revisited multiple times throughout the year, ensuring retention and application in different contexts. Students will also engage in discussion and debate to further develop their critical-thinking skills.

This approach empowers our students to become confident, creative thinkers who are ready to face future challenges.
