In third grade we'll continue with Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA), a comprehensive English Language Arts (ELA) program designed to teach students reading, writing, speaking, and listening, while developing deep vocabulary and broad background knowledge. CKLA takes a fundamentally different approach from typical ELA programs, recognizing that teaching students about history, science, art, and literature is essential to their reading successfully in third grade and beyond. CKLA carefully sequences background knowledge, building vocabulary and comprehension while instilling a life-long curiosity for learning.
