Homework Offered
This is a flexible learning class schedule, so all work is essentially "homework" you will do on your own time. Expect to spend about 45 min per week on the class content and then I would strongly suggest additional time practicing reading the words.

Handouts will be provided to print each week. Students will need basic craft supplies (crayons, glue, scissors, metal brads)

Parents/caregivers may need to help with scissors, glue, and other small motor skills depending on the age and maturity of the student.
