Class Experience

The learner will know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words (when applicable). The learner will recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.
Hello! My name is Kristin and I’ve been teaching elementary for 11 years now!  I have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Reading Specialist endorsement and Bachelor's degree in elementary education K-6 with an endorsement in ESL. I am especially passionate about helping reluctant readers build their confidence and find their love for reading by engaging their brain with multi-sensory techniques, solidifying phonemic awareness, instructing sight words to mastery, and mastering phonics skills with scientifically-proven methods of teaching reading. I have experience working with readers who have dyslexia, autism, or attention/focus/learning challenges that make reading tricky, including some specialized training in Orton Gillingham techniques. I am currently taking the Science of Reading online course and will have it completed in January, so everything I'm learning is fresh in my mind and ready to share with your learners. I love all of my learners and work hard to help them feel successful and improve their reading confidence! 
A file will be available upon enrollment that could be printed if your child prefers to learn by having a hard copy of the activity. I will also have the activities projected onto their screen as we go through the lesson. Some students prefer to practice writing the sight words using white board and dry erase marker. To build our sight words, learners can use the file of printable paper letter tiles that I will have available to you for printing, or if they have magnetic letter tiles or foam letters, they can use those as well for a more hands-on approach. White boards or plain paper and pencil could be used for additional practice if printing or magnetic letters are not available. I'm flexible to whatever method works best for your family and for your learner!
I will use quick, stress-free, and effective formative assessment at the end of each lesson, and parents will receive immediate feedback from me on the level of understanding and mastery of sight words that follow the r-controlled pattern. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
