 1 file available upon enrollment
1. Students must purchase the All About Spelling Interactive Kit ($22.85) which includes the letter tiles used to build words OR the letter tiles app. The letter tiles app can only be used if the student has two devices, one to take the class and one to use the tiles app. https://www.allaboutlearningpress.com/tiles-and-boxes-s/ (Only if you have not purchased this previously) OR https://www.allaboutlearningpress.com/letter-tiles-app/ 2. If you purchase the physical letter tiles, you will need a large magnetic white board and a dry erase marker. The magnetic whiteboard is so that students can easily hold up the words they make for me to see. If you purchase the letter tiles app, a small white board and marker is needed. 3. Students must purchase the spelling activity book for level one. This will be used for four classes. https://www.allaboutlearningpress.com/all-about-spelling-level-1-zip-into-spelling-activity-book/ 4. Students will need a notebook to write sentences in or may use their white board.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
