How Outschool Works

This 5 week course is designed to cover the literary elements taught in a 3rd -- 5th grade literature/reading fiction unit. Rather than reading several short stories in a literature textbook, students will read a complete novel -- Charlotte's Web. Although Charlotte's Web is often a read-aloud in younger grades, the novel also provides upper elementary students opportunities for enjoyable study and independent reading. Third graders taking the class should be strong readers. Fifth graders...
This class is taught in English.
Students will gain experience analyzing fiction text for setting, theme, plot, figures of speech, and character study. Students will also practice paragraph writing through weekly writing activities.
I've taught numerous age groups in various settings over the years. I love discussing books and inspiring students to read more. Taking turns is promoted and guided in all of my classes, so that the talkative and shy alike can participate.
Weekly reading and optional writing assignments are given during each class. Almost all of the reading is done independently outside of class. Students are expected to read about 50-60 pages a week from the Charlotte's Web novel. Since reading speed varies widely, consider how much time it would take for your student to read about ten pages a day, five days a week. A small writing activity is introduced at the end of each class. Students who wish to receive a grade/assessment will need to finish the writing and submit it within 24 hours of the class. A typical 4th or 5th grade student should be able to complete the work in less than an hour and a half a week.
Students will need a copy of Scholastic Inc. Charlotte's Web to maintain consistency with page numbers assigned by the teacher. It is available on Amazon under the search "Charlotte's Web Scholastic" for under 7 dollars. Students will also need the free app Kahoot (with parent permission.) The teacher will also post a print-out packet a few days prior to the first class. This handout packet will be available on the classroom page.
All students will receive an informal assessment through the Parent Conversation emails in Outschool at the end of the course. Parents who wish to receive actual letter grades for the student's finished work will need to let Miss Amy know at the beginning of the course. The graded work needs submitted within 24 hours of being assigned.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents permission is needed for students to use the Kahoot app or website. No account needs created. The teacher holds the account. Students only need access to the app or site before being given a pin number from the teacher.
