    Default LA Extensions

    Are the LA Extensions extra lessons? Are they part of the regular curriculum or extra practice?

    They are part of the language arts curriculum. Language arts covers so many topics. LA and LAX just focus on different things.

    I usually recommend that students in grades 1 and 2 do the core language arts first, and then the language arts extensions. This is because the readers in the language arts curriculum are phonics-based and decodable. The readers in the extensions are a little more difficult and, in my opinion, more appropriate for later in the year. Also, both LA and LAX often give writing assignments using Story Creator. Two of that type of open-ended activity in one day is too much for most students that age.

    From grade three and up, I recommend doing LA and LAX together.
