Language arts instructional and assessment activities for second graders are presented in the unit five language arts strand. Two readers, "Vamos de Viaje" and "Aventuras para Todos", are used to help the student in reading for details, comprehension, story analysis, and work with grammatical elements. Most of the reading is silent on an independent basis. Basic activities include the structured reading, oral and written creative expression, language analysis, and review and reinforcement of the decoding process. Grammatical structures deal with different types of sentences, parts of speech, and vowel-consonant combinations. Activities for creative expression include writing stories, oral work in telling and dramatizing stories, and non-verbal communication activities in pantomime, body movement, and various art media. Students also work with concepts related to the unit theme of the school as a community and to four spiraling questions. Focus, materials, and objective for each activity are given in Spanish and English, with teacher instructions in Spanish only. Assessment activities measure the knowledge acquired in the instructional activities and determine concepts or skills that need reinforcement. (DS)
