*** THIS IS A FLEX CLASS AND DOES NOT HAVE LIVE MEETINGS *** Students will learn new vocabulary words, including adjectives, verbs, adverbs, nouns, homophones, homographs, or idioms. These new words/phrases will be grade-level appropriate, but also stretch the learners and help them to expand their knowledge and vocabulary. They will write a short story using the provided story prompts and vocabulary words and should plan to share their story with me and/or the class. (If you have taken...
Learners will: • Increase their vocabulary by learning new words/phrases, and figures of speech. • Expand their creative writing skills. • Write short stories and build their personal story notebooks. • Share their stories and practice their public speaking skills if they choose to submit a video recording or read the story to friends and family. • Get to know other learners and feel comfortable and confident in our class.
I am a certified teacher and have worked with children of all ages from 5-18. I enjoy teaching and learning with the students. I am excited to help spark/develop an interest in writing as well as for learning new words.
Homework will include writing the stories and submitting them to me through the classroom or as a direct message. I encourage learners to continue writing their stories during the week if they would like to do so. I will provide individual video feedback and praise for all work, as well as grammar and writing edits and suggestions for stories that are sent to me in a typed format. I will post a worksheet activity (word search, fill-in-the-blank questions, definition matching, cross-word puzzles, etc) each week in the classroom. Students should submit their completed worksheets to me in the classroom so I can correct their work.
Learners will need a pencil and paper for new words/definitions. They may choose to use a notebook to keep everything together if they would like. They may want a notebook for their stories and writings with a separate paper or notebook for their words/definitions - it is just personal preference.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
