Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will improve their letter awareness skills.  
Learners will gain confidence in a virtual classroom.  
Learners will develop a love of reading and learning. 
I have provided literacy (storytime) programs to preschoolers and elementary students for over 20 years.  During these programs, early literacy and educational topics such as colors, letters, animals, counting, numbers, seasons, weather, and much more were presented. I have a master’s degree in Library and Information Sciences, a BA in English and Art, and hold teaching certifications for English 5-12th grades and Art K-12th grades. I am the author of the children's picture book, Peas Let Her be a Princess.
Learners will find items in their house that begin with the letter of the week.
Learners will practice tracing/writing the letter of the week.
Learners will post their letter of the week items and tracings/writings in the classroom.
Learners will reply with positive comments to posts by other students.
1 - Item or two that begins with the letter of the week. 2 - Pencil 3 - Weekly posted worksheet (or piece of paper) to practice writing/tracing the letter of the week.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no grading in this class as it is designed for early learners.  However, I will reply to all posts with positive comments and if the learner completes all 5 weeks, they will receive a certificate of completion! 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
How can you help your child be successful?  
1 - Each week your child is encouraged to bring an item or two to the class that begins with or contains the letter of the week.  At the beginning of the prerecorded lesson, I will ask your child to show their item(s).  I will pause and then praise your child.  However, if more time is needed for your child to show their item(s), feel free to pause the video.  
2 - Throughout the lesson, your child will be asked to repeat or respond to various activities.  Please encourage your child to participate verbally in class.  Feel free to back up and repeat sections to reinforce songs or rhymes designed to reinforce the letter of the week.  
3 - Each lesson will have a worksheet for your child to use during class.  Please print the worksheet and bring it, along with a pencil, to class.  If you are unable to print the worksheet, bring a piece of paper to class.  Depending on your child's skills, you may want to write the letter of the week in dashes. In each lesson, we will practice tracing or writing the letter of the week.  During this time I will ask your child to write or trace the letter and ​I will demonstrate how to write the upper and lower case for the letter of the week. Feel free to pause the lesson, if your child requires additional time to practice.   
3 - Take the time to post a video or image of your child's letter of the week item(s) and/or their tracing or writing of the letter of the week in the classroom posting area.   This gives your child a sense of accomplishment and your child will gain confidence by displaying their talents and ideas for their classmates.  
4 - Encourage your child to view posts by other students and leave comments.  This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to learn the power of positive words.
5 - Participate in the weekly "I have, who has, telephone" letter of the week game.  In this game, learners encourage each other to find items that begin with the letter of the week. For example, Learner 1 could post: I have an apple, who has an alligator?  Learner 2 could post: I have an apple and an alligator. Who has an ant?  Learner 3 could post: I have an apple, an alligator, and an ant. Who has an airplane?  It is fun to challenge your fellow classmates to find items that begin with the letter of the week.  This game promotes letter recognition and memory skills.
6 - Each week, we will collectively write a poem one sentence at a time.  Students will be asked to post a sentence with at least one word that begins with the letter of the week.  For example, "An ant is small but strong."  I will combine the sentences at the end of the week and we will all enjoy reading our silly poem!
