This is part B of a year-long English class for emerging readers. Part A and Part B are independent of each other, however, so Part B can be taken before Part A (and vice versa).The focus of this class is language development. Students enrolled in the class don't need to be reading fluently yet, but they should understand the sounds each letter makes, be able to read simple words such as cat and dog, and be well on their way to sounding out difficult words such as eagle or kitchen. Each week,...
Students will continue developing their phonics skills and phonemic awareness. They will begin learning about root words and different tenses. They will learn the concepts of nouns and verbs. They will improve their writing skills. They will improve their reading comprehension and fluency. They will become familiar with some of the common folktales, fairytales, and nursery rhymes that are a part of every day vernacular and important for future literacy. Most importantly, they will further develop their confidence in their ability to read, and their love of reading and stories will soar.
Homework each week will consist of reading the "Book of the Week before class. I will post our new words of the week for families to review if they choose. There will also always be the option of doing creative work in writing or art that relates to the stories/concepts of the week and sharing with the class at the beginning of each class period.
Only the first book listed for each week is required reading. Books may be purchased or checked out from the library or listened to as an audio book or read on kindle!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will provide a written report at the end of class that will focus on growth and effort.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I believe all of our books are age appropriate, but if parents have any problems with the books chosen, we can find an alternative for the entire class. We will not be discussing any topics such as war, death, violence, racial discrimination, or anything else controversial.
