In this ongoing playgroup, learners will free draw pictures, share toys, and take turns talking with other kids in the same age group. The playgroup offers a place to socialize when other options aren't available. #creative

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
  • Students will practice age appropriate social skills; such as taking turns, listening, asking questions, following directions and being good friends. They will practice these skills in a fun playgroup through teacher guidance. The students will have an opportunity to share their drawings and practice explaining their work and giving details.

Required Supplies (Students may use these items for class)
Paper or Whiteboard or drawing tablet 
markers/pencils/crayons
Student can use another art medium such as clay, paint, or even blocks if they are interested.

I will send a message prior to future classes if additional supplies are needed for a fun craft activity, but prefer to keep it simple to allow students an opportunity to work more independently and allow parents to use this 25 min class period as needed with only basic supervision needed on their part.
If student is new to Outschool/Zoom, please be in the room or available to help student with mute/unmute buttons if needed.  Students will need to have drawing supplies available for class. Otherwise minimal parental guidance should be needed.  

Note: Since this is primarily a play-based class with other younger learners, I generally will not share recordings for safety and privacy reasons.  However, if it is possible based on class material, I can sometimes create at home activity sheets from my slides for learners, who may have missed class.  So feel free to reach out to me if that is something that you might be interested in.
If your student loved a movement/transition song used during class, below is a list of educational creators the teacher incorporates (with permission) in various classes. 

Video Copyright Permissions:

2. Jack Hartmann's Hop 2 it Music; www.jackhatmann.com; 2022 Hop 2 It Music; www.YouTube.com/jackhartmann

The teacher will occasionally use excerpts of story books and quick transition video clips (with author's/performer's/creator's permissions) to introduce an activity or allow the students to move/play a game.  These will only be used as supporting materials to provide opportunities for social engagement and will not be used for long periods of the class.

The teacher may use books that the teacher wrote about her goat, Oreo and lambs, Herbie and Kirby for students, who may prefer a story to give them drawing ideas. The two books written by the teacher are:

Weather Adventure with Kirby, Herbie & Oreo. (Author: Lily Palmer -Teacher)
Adventures with Kirby, Herbie & Oreo. (Author: Lily Palmer - Teacher)

These books will be used to engage learners, who prefer to observe and listen in this class. These will only be used as supporting materials to provide opportunities for social engagement and will not be used for long periods of the class.
