1st Grade Science Core Curriculum NGSS Homeschool Standards (Year Long)
Audra Mayhan, MS - Licensed Teacher
This on-going school year class will focus on Next Generation & Common Core Science Standards for homeschool grade 1. This is a hands-on learning-style class where students will engage in fun & informative activities for material retention.
US Grade 1
NOTE: on my class page you will find science sections for grades 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5. Ask about sibling and multi-class discounts! I just loved teaching science to my 1st graders! This course can be taken for the purpose of introducing or for reteaching the 1st grade science concepts. Every 2- to 3-weeks the classes will work on a different theme. (Unless otherwise noted.) The students will interact with the teacher and their peers as they learn, investigate and discuss various science...
Both as a therapist and K-3 teacher, I have helped children for the past 19 years - last school year was my first full year on Outschool and then the 11 years before that, I worked in a school which specialized in high functioning autism (there were "typical" students there as well.) Throughout my experiences as an art therapist and then as a special education teacher, I have seen that children learn best when engaged in hands-on acitivities. They tend to retain information much more effectively when enaged in active learning. Besides learning the science standards, the focus for students in this class will be on actively participating.
Homework OfferedParents can decide if their learner needs extra time to work on their projects in between the weekly classes or after the last class if the project is not complete.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedOn-going dialog during class.
OVERALL MATERIALS for DAILY CLASS participation: 1. Construction Paper 2. Extra White Copy Paper is Handy 3. Pencils 4. Erasers 5. Crayons (markers are messy) 6. Glue Sticks (white glue is messy) 7. Scissors 8. Access to a printer: I will send out any topic specific handouts by the Sunday of the upcoming week. I tend to send 2-3 weeks at a time. 9. NOTE: theme related materials for special projects (ie: model magic, paint, etc) will be sent out ahead of time to give you enough time to gather them for class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Depending on the independence of your learner, parents may want to be in close proximity in case your child needs assistance with the hands on activity.
I use researched-based curriculum from study.com, generationgenius.com and brainpopjr.com / brainpop.com.
