The intent of this standard is that

students will continue to expand listening and speaking vocabularies in the context of fiction and nonfiction trade books and other print materials that reflect the Virginia Standards of Learning for English, history and social science, science, and mathematics.

Students will learn to use antonyms, synonyms, and descriptive language to explain and clarify ideas.

Students will demonstrate an increase in vocabulary by giving and following three-step or four-step directions.

 

Growth in oral language aids in the development of fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
