P.S - During the summer months, Ms.Bree offers a "1st Grade to 2nd Grade" transitional course.  Ideally, students should be at a reading level J by the time 2nd Grade begins, so we will work on ReadingA-Z level i and j books over the summer.  We also review the trickiest 1st grade skills and introduce the first quarter 2nd Grade skills.

Virtual worksheet links are posted on the classroom page every Friday.  (These are optional review worksheets).
Dry erase board & Dry Erase Markers (For Daily Writing Activities) Playdough, Legos, or Crayons (For Biweekly Word-Building)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students are informally assessed throughout the course, and parents will be provided general feedback quarterly.  Parents who would liked detailed formal assessments can sign up here: 

3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
