This is Part A of a year-long English class for second and third-grade students. Part A and Part B are independent of each other, however, so Part B can be taken before Part A (and vice versa). This course will be entirely devoted to reading and writing. Reading twelve books in twelve weeks may seem fast, but these are short, excellent books and well worth the effort. Rather than studying these works in depth, we will focus on the way the author's write, how they develop their characters,...
Students will increase their love of reading, first and foremost. At this age, kids are usually still excited about reading, and we will try to keep that excitement going! Students are also usually pretty excited about writing at this age. I believe too much criticism without context quickly stifles that excitement, so my remarks on students' writing will be mostly focused on finding what is working in their writing and trying to help them expand upon it. I want them to recognize the potential in their work, and I want them to learn that a little polishing only makes something shine more. Our writing projects will be fun and engaging, and, for those students who are interested, I will encourage lots of illustration. We will talk a little bit about nouns and verbs, focusing primarily on the practice of reading our writing aloud to find mistakes or problems or to spot weak word choices. I will provide positive written feedback on every assignment.
Homework will involve one to two hours of writing each week and around two hours of reading. Students should be expected to spend anywhere from 3 to 4 hours on English each week. Children's attention spans vary widely at this age, so I will be flexible on writing-assignment length and a student's ability to finish the reading assignment.
Students will need to have a copy of each book. These can be purchased or checked out from the library. Children can also listen to audio versions of the books or read these books on a kindle.
A written report will be provided for each student. It will be mostly focused on growth and effort.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
None of our books have objectionable material for children of this age, but parents are encouraged to check each book description ahead of time. I am always open to book substitutions if a family feels a book isn't appropriate for their child.
