Class Experience

The fifth-grade student will confidently use the skills from the writing, listening & speaking, ELA, Math, and Language common core standards. 
A s a dedicated educator with experience in teaching children (birth-eighth grade) with special needs, preschoolers, and my children. I know that writing is an important skill, particularly grammar, which is the rules of a language governing the sounds, words, sentences, and other elements, as well as their combination and interpretation. In addition, I have worked with students (adults and children) who are second language learners, where grammar is difficult to learn. In addition to being a certified elementary education teacher (K-8) and licensed special education, I am certified (TESOL and TEFL) to teach students whose English is their second language. I have a BA in Elementary Education, a BS in Special Education, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, and an Ed.S in Education.    The word grammar also denotes the study of these abstract features or a book presenting these rules of writing, which includes writing sentences that involve complete throughs involving grammatically correct sentences can be hard. I have worked with students who have limited literacy and language for over 30 years in public schools. I worked with speech therapists to develop students' individual education plans in part, to help them learn to write, specifically to help them develop their language skills and give them a foundation for reading and writing. In addition, as a certified TEFL and TESOL teacher, I have received training in grammar, idioms, writing, and vocabulary development.  I generally prefer one on one or in small groups as much as possible.  This allows me to get to know the students and their needs.  Grammar skills are something that students need to learn in a sequential manner. Traditional grammar is a sort of mental exercise in a purely abstract subject, but functional grammar is linked with speech, reading, and writing.  Traditional grammar is taught formally, and functional grammar is taught incidentally.  There are two main approaches to teaching grammar. These are the deductive and inductive approaches. I have received training as an elementary and special education teacher to help students learn various grammar skills. While I use worksheets to provide examples of lessons, I have been trained to teach grammar by encouraging and promoting reading and writing. This course will be based on techniques and skills that I found useful in helping students learn to write and answer questions. In addition, I have worked as a freelance writer and copy editor for 10 years as well as taught English skills at the elementary, middle, and high school levels for over 30 years. During my years as a teacher and now, as a freelance writer and editor, I have also tutored students who need to improve their writing skills for pre-K and post-graduate level papers.
1-2 hours of homework per week
Two notebooks and two folders, pencils, colored pencils or crayons, glue

Informal assessment, book reports, and completed assignments. 
4 hours 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The PowerPoint for each lesson will be screen shared with the students.  The websites, i.e. Google Docs and YouTube, will be shared via screen shared with the students.  They do not need a membership to use these websites because they will be screen shared with the students.  In addition, the students will use Google Docs to share the information with the teacher. Each student will haveir own link to their Google Docs.  All materials will be screen shared with the students. he students will use glue and colored pencils, crayons for various projects during the semesters.
