While writing literary analysis pieces, students will be graded on their ability to support their conclusions with evidence from the text. Some areas that these writings will be graded on are proper grammar, mechanics, tone of voice, and organization.
Simple geometry, measurement, money skills, and decimals are included in the elementary curriculum as well. The work in these subjects consists of a lot of practice doing equations using paper and pencil and often times a calculator. Students will have assessments after the end of each unit or topic and usually a midterm exam as well as a final exam.
