Pathways to reading —

For the younger readers —-

Forth Grade Writing students will be working on several assignments in Google Classroom.  If they work on this at home make sure they are using their own gmail account because it will not save.  The students will be starting the year working on narrative writing pieces.

Try to read with your child for 10-15 mins per day.  A large vocabulary can turn your child into a better reader and writer.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at or call me at 573-762-9653 ext. 1121

There are four main types of writing: expository, persuasive, narrative, and descriptive.

  • Expository – Writing in which author’s purpose is to inform or explain the subject to the reader.
  • Persuasive – Writing that states the opinion of the writer and attempts to influence the reader.
  • Narrative – Writing in which the author tells a story. The story could be fact or fiction.
  • Descriptive – A type of expository writing that uses the five senses to paint a picture for the reader. This writing incorporates imagery and specific details.
