Class Experience

-Everything in these lessons pertains to common core standards and other standards for various states.

-Students will review and study various English topics such as Parts of Speech, capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, verb tenses, spelling, vocabulary, and more by participating in targeted activities, listening to video lectures and presentations, along with a specific fun activity related to theme and grammar topic.

-Students will gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment by learning other skills such as techniques related to crafting, sculpting, baking, and more while it’s related to the theme and topics of the week.

-Students will participate in a flex class but have many opportunities for student and teacher interaction so they feel truly part of the class social experience.

In a flex class, pretty much all work is homework. I have made a very detailed lesson plan in the description. It does list all assignments and explains what the student will do in them. Assignments should be turned in as they are finished, but everything should be in on Friday afternoons if possible to allow for feedback. Let me know if you are running behind and I will do the same. We are all busy, so I understand if you fall behind.
Materials: Week 1 For Panda: * Air-dry clay- Black and white are needed) Walmart or Amazon. As an alternative, you can use white and another color. It doesn't have to be black. The cheapest is Crayola Modeling magic (Walmart or Amazon) *A few toothpicks *A disposable plastic knife *white glue Week 2: Some colored pencils of some kind. Week 3: Access to a recording device such as phone or the computer Week 4: Cookies -For Mermaid cookies - Sugar cookie mix, any brand. Ingredients for that cookie mix and measuring spoons/cups. -Cookie sheet pan -Parchment paper -Cookie icing (comes in a pouch) Amazon has Wilton’s brand for about 5.00 each. Walmart has Great Value brand for about 4.00 (right now, just over 3.00 at Walmart each.) - Need Pink, blue, and white. -(Optional) Sterling Pearl brand editable shimmer powder (Amazon for about 6.00) Also called Luster Dust. It really makes the cookie look Mermaid-oriented. Any kind of silvery luster dust. -Heart-shaped cookie cutter -A couple of toothpicks -a small, cheap paintbrush For Bigfoot cookies - Sugar cookie mix, same as In mermaid -Cookie sheet pan -Parchment paper -Cookie icing same kind as listed for mermaid but blue, green, -brown sprinkles or brown icing in a squeeze tube with a fine point. Sprinkles may be cheaper. -Foot shaped cookie cutter -a few toothpicks --a small cheap paintbursh
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I don't really grade unless I am asked to. What I do is see if the student did each assignment. I pay attention to what seems harder for students and I can usually tell if an effort has been made to do the assignment well. If they make an effort and do the work, they have a shot at the prizes, but if they only put in the effort for those prize-giving activities, it won't work. I will also do what I can to help if the student does not understand. It may be a flex class, but I am still fully accessible.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance is suggested with the use of glue or scissors, observation of bugs, and sharp objects while making cookies or potential for food allergy.
Parental guidance for 3rd party sites, although all of them are approved by Outschool.
Worksheets for Mermaids and Bigfoot were taken from Teachers Pay Teachers.
Will be using Kahoot and Khan Academy for videos and/or questions.
Google Docs will house the course outline with assignment listings. It will have links to assignments and the Google Doc will have a link in the Outschool Classroom. Nothing will require direct access or need accounts
Google Forms will be used, but by link only.
