Recommended Supplies (Students may use these items for class) Whiteboard & Dry Erase Markers (if possible) Crayons/Marker/ Pencils & Paper I will send a message prior to future classes if additional supplies are needed for a fun craft activity, but prefer to keep it simple to allow students an opportunity to work more independently and allow parents to use this 25 min class period as needed with only basic supervision needed on their part.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
If student is new to Outschool/Zoom, please be in the room or available to help student with mute/unmute buttons if needed.  Otherwise minimal parental guidance should be needed.  

I may include occasional seated limited movement activity for learners who may need a movement break.  This is optional and learner can opt out of participating or I can skip movement activities if requested.
If your student loved a movement/transition song used during class, below is a list of educational creators the teacher incorporates (with permission) in various classes.
