Language Arts Learning Targets
The term "learning targets" is what our class decided to use instead of lesson objective.  Learning targets will be repeated throughout the unit to reinforce concepts and lead to mastery.  Obviously, learning targets cannot all be hit at one time.  Please refer to your student's planner for the daily target.

*Please also notice that reading and writing targets can be covered in science and social studies lessons.
