IN.1. Reading: Word Recognition, Fluency, and Vocabulary Development: Students understand the basic features of words. They see letter patterns and know how to translate them into spoken language by using phonics (an understanding of the different letters that make different sounds), syllables, word parts (un-, re-, -est, -ful), and context (the meaning of the text around a word).
4.1.7. Vocabulary and Concept Development: Use context to determine the meaning of unknown words.
IN.4. Writing: Processes and Features: Students write clear sentences and paragraphs that develop a central idea. Students progress through the stages of the writing process, including prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing multiple drafts.
4.4.6. Research Process and Technology: Locate information in reference texts by using organizational features, such as prefaces and appendixes.
IN.6. Writing: English Language Conventions: Students write using Standard English conventions appropriate to this grade level.
4.6.8. Spelling: Spell correctly roots (bases of words, such as unnecessary, cowardly), inflections (words like care/careful/caring), words with more than one acceptable spelling (like advisor/adviser), suffixes and prefixes (-ly, -ness, mis-, un-), and syllables (word parts each containing a vowel sound, such as sur-prise or e-col-o-gy).
