Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - 2
This class is taught in English.
Students will focus on characterization and review the 5 W’s + an H (who, what, when, where, why, how) of comprehension.   They will also learn to listen, take turns, and respect classmates who are speaking and sharing ideas!  Students will respond to a writing prompt to apply new vocabulary and information. (Students who do not yet read and write words will be given prewriting strategies to complete the tasks.)  By sharing their writing, students are also building speaking skills and gaining confidence to share their thoughts and ideas with a group!

We will focus on:
-reading comprehension
-writing
-speaking
-fluency
-listening

Students will be introduced to the names of emotions and personalities through the book.  However, the goal of the lesson is to focus on reading comprehension and responding to writing prompts.
I have enjoyed 24 wonderful years in the public school system and have the following experience:

Assessments Offered
Students will be assessed informally through participation, questioning, and by completing a written response and drawing based on the book we read. (Note: We will review pre-writing strategies for young writers who do not yet write words.) Students are asked to complete their assignment if they do not finish before class is over. Students/parents are welcome and encouraged to send the student's work to me through Outschool if they would like it proofread and/or would like some additional feedback on the student's writing.
