Class Experience

Students will expand their vocabulary and learn to use describing words in order to make predictions and eventually solve a problem.
An optional activity will be sent to each family that allows learners to practice matching colored underwear with the corresponding polar bear.  Emergent readers can use the color clues to help them and more advanced readers can use just the color sight words to determine where each pair of underwear belongs.  Learners will also practice fine motor skills of cutting and gluing with this activity.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed by their oral participation and will be gently corrected if they make a mistake and do not self-correct.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
