Subject: Parentheses

How should students read (3x-5)+1?  I've seen several versions online
supporting "open parenthesis", "close parenthesis" or "right paren" and "left
paren". I'm not certain which one to teach my fourth graders.  Would it be
incorrect to say "parenthesis 3x-5 parenthesis +1"?

Thank you!
