Class Experience

Throughout this class, we will use many different approaches: sharing, discussion, games, and other positive interaction.  We will grow and practice our developing social skills, classroom or group learning skills, communication and presentation skills, and more.  We will practice:
*taking turns
*public speaking
*following directions
*asking for help
*asking questions related to the topic
*giving positive feedback to our peers
*dealing with frustration and impatience
*teamwork and emerging friendship skills
*kindness and empathy
*building confidence
I'm so excited to share my love of collecting, toys, books and more with you!  I've been teaching STEAM and art classes through fun, engaging topics like to preschool through middle school for 8 years through an independent STEAM education company, as well as at a local arts facility.  I'm really looking forward to connecting with new students here on Outschool.  Not only will we be sharing our excitement about our favorite things--but we'll sneak in some elementary skills, too: comparing and contrasting, observation, social skills and more--all things that elementary kids love to learn and practice!
Bring your show-and-tell items and think of 2-3 things you would like to share about them. Student may also be requested to bring some of the following on a week-by-week basis (posted as an update weekly in the classroom posts): Creative "maker" supplies such as drawing supplies, paper, blocks, magnetic building blocks, snap-together construction blocks, modeling clay or play dough, dice, or other common household items. Substitution ideas are always available upon request and no student will ever be unable to participate due to missing supplies. (please note: Playdough MAY contain wheat or gluten and families should be sure to avoid it in case of allergies. A gluten-free recipe and options are available upon request.)
No formal assessment.  Comments, assistance, and feedback are always available upon request.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Although the learners will be allowed to choose their own show-and-tell items, final approval will be provided by the teacher as to whether those items are age-appropriate and meet Outschool's safety guidelines.  Please help your child to select items that you think would be a good fit for the class.  Conversation may be steered gently away from controversial topics (such as guns or violence, for example).

Regarding supplies and activities:
All physical activities are age and developmentally-appropriate.  No physical activities are ever required, and the teacher will provide alternatives methods of participation whenever needed, at the parent's discretion.

Playdough MAY contain wheat or gluten and families should be sure to avoid it in case of allergies.  A gluten-free recipe and options are available upon request.)
