In this class, students will be given a brief overview of how to put letter sounds together to read words. Then they will practice reading words to help a cartoon astronaut cross the galaxy. They will then be introduced to simple sentences. We will play another game that requires them to continue practicing those 3-letter, CVC words and we will end with a timing (much like the timings they might see for beginning and end of year kindergarten testing).

This class serves two purposes. It is meant to bridge the gap between knowing letter names and sounds and putting them together to read words. It is also meant to help students practice for beginning or end of year kindergarten testing where they will be asked to read as many CVC words as quickly as they can.
I have been working in kindergarten classrooms as a reading aide and instructional assistant for 3 years. I was in charge of assessing children and administered the DIBELS test 3 times a year.
There is no homework required, but it is highly recommended that students continue to practice reading CVC words to maintain their ability.
Students will be asked to read 8 CVC words and 2 sentences correctly and complete the timing at the end of the course to earn their certificate.
20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
If parents elect to receive a physical copy of the completion certificate and a small toy wand, then they will need to indicate this. If preferred, parents and students may receive the completion certificate virtually, though they will not receive glow in the dark stars.
