This summer ELA class is designed to be a fun diversion from the regular leveled language arts classes while reading fables or short stories and developing writing skills to keep your learner actively engaged during the summer.

Class Experience

Students will review second grade skills.
Students will remain actively engaged in language arts activities over the summer.
I am a retired elementary teacher with experience in public, private and homeschool settings which included work with deaf and special needs children.  I love to see children develop a love for reading and be able to relate what they read to everyday experiences.

Parental Guidance Statement:
The reading passages come from k5learning resources.  These passages need to be downloading free of charge directly from the website.  There is no membership fee and a vast supply of supplemental learning materials available to teachers and parents alike.  I have written permission to use the materials in  this online class, but I am unable to send you PDF files of stories due to copywrite laws.  Here is the link to use for the Level 1 classes...
1.  Go to the link
2.  Select the passage for the week
3.  Print the passage and the comprehension questions
4.  You do NOT need to print the answer sheet. IF you choose to print it for your benefit, please do not let your child have access to it. 
We will use the passage the first class of each week.  They will need a paper copy of the passage in order to do some of the activities in class.  These activities may include finding and marking target words, punctuation marks, answers to comprehension questions, etc.
These free stories/comprehension pages should be printed by the parent for the students to use during and after class.
