Description

Class Experience

Young Learners will practice letter recognition and beginning letter sounds.  They will practice forming letters using a variety of materials.  They will learn about the weekly theme and be exposed to new ideas and vocabulary related to the world around them.  They will develop social skills such as asking questions, sharing ideas with a group, following directions, communicating, problem solving.  They will engage in age-appropriate, interactive, playful learning through creative projects, rhymes and songs, games and dramatic movement exercises, as well as counting, pattern recognition, color matching, read-alouds, and other hands-on activities.
I'm so excited to share my love of learning about the world with you!  I've been teaching STEAM topics like animals, science and more to preschool through middle school for 6 years through an independent STEAM education company, and I'm really looking forward to connecting with new students here on Outschool.  Not only will we be learning our ABC's, but we'll sneak in some colors, numbers and math, comparing and contrasting, observation, movement and more--all things that preschool and preK kids love to learn and practice!
No homework.  Extension activities may occasionally be provided but will not be required.
Paper and pencil, construction paper, colored pencils/markers/crayons, building supplies ie LEGO or DUPLO bricks or similar bricks, small manipulatives (anything that can be used to make letters--contact teacher for ideas), building blocks, sculpting materials such as clay or playdough.  
Printed materials will be provided before each meeting.  Access to a printer is required--but if none is available, please contact teacher to arrange an alternative solution. (We will make it work!)
Additional materials may be requested prior to individual classes, but they will be common household or office supplies that are easy to find in most homes.  Alternative suggestions are always available upon request if a student does not have access to a supply we will be using.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No formal assessment.
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Regarding supplies/activities:
Movement activities are basic in nature (animal moves, etc) but please be sure to provide adult supervision if you feel it is necessary.  Participation in movement activities is no required.  Please contact the teacher with any concerns.
Allergy Note: Playdough may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease.  I am happy to provide a recipe for gluten-free playdough upon request, or suggest alternative supplies. 
Please provide adult assistance with cutting/scissor-use as needed per the parents' discretion and child's ability.

About Me

I've been a STEAM educator for 8 years, as well as a homeschool parent, teacher, and advisor for nearly a decade.  I use an eclectic approach to teaching.  I see myself as more of a facilitator and fellow life-long learner than lecturer.  I love...
