Handbook for Language Arts: Grades Three and Four. Curriculum Bulletin, 1969-70 Series, No. 6.

This curriculum guide is intended to aid teachers and supervisors in elementary schools by providing them with practical, specific information on how to help children learn the nature of the English language, organize and express their own ideas, and use language to acquire knowledge. An overview of the program for grades 3 and 4 indicates methods of evaluation and suggests expected outcomes of the program in terms of students' both getting and expressing ideas. Activities are suggested which are designed to extend auditory and visual discrimination skills, comprehension skills, literary appreciation, and reading experiences. Besides helping them learn about language (e.g., vocabulary development, sentence structure, and history of the English language), the guide also contains activities in vocal and written expression. The appendix contains a list of books to read aloud to children, poems for grades 3 and 4, basic spelling words, selected teacher references, a description of the sounds of English, and handwriting manuscript forms.
