Michigan Early Elementary Language Arts Content Standards Benchmarks developed
with this project:
Content Standard 2.1: Write
with developing fluency for multiple purposes to produce a variety of texts,
such as stories, journals, learning logs, directions, and letters.
Content Standard 2.2: Recognize that authors
make choices as they write to convey meaning and influence an audience.
Examples include word selection, sentence variety, and genre.
Content Standard 3.1: Integrate listening,
speaking, viewing, reading, and writing skills for multiple purposes and in
varied contexts. Examples include using more than one of the language arts to
create a story, write a poem or letter, or to prepare and present a unit
project on their community.
Content Standard 3.3: Read and write with
developing fluency, speak confidently, listen and interact appropriately, view
strategically, and represent creatively. Examples include sharing texts in
groups and using an author's/reader's chair.
Content Standard 3.8: Respond to the ideas or
feelings generated by texts and listen to the responses of others.
Content Standard 6.3: Explore works of different
authors, speakers, and illustrators to determine how they present ideas and
feelings to evoke different responses.
Content Standard 8.2: Explore how the
characteristics of various narrative genre and story elements can be used to
convey ideas and perspectives. Examples include character, setting, and
