Class Experience

Students will be taught the 6 syllable types and the steps for decoding multi syllable words. The main goal is to teach students to transfer their syllable type knowledge to unknown words in their everyday reading.
In my 25+ years of teaching I have been trained in all kinds of different ways to teach students to read.  This most recent method of teaching students to understand how and why letters make different sounds when put with other letters and placed in certain parts of the words has completely changed my way of thinking.  I have seen huge gains in the students I work with in my brick and mortar school by teaching students the syllable types and how those syllable types work together to make bigger words.  
Each week students will be expected to go on a word hunt to find words to share with the class.  There will be other activities to complete, such as syllabication worksheets, passages and/or games to practice reading, dictation words and/or sentences to write. These activities will help solidify the skills. 
Students will need -white board and markers (or paper and markers) -books for the word hunt -any pintables uploaded for the week - a bumpy surface such as very course sandpaper or a plastic craft canvas - red crayon (not a marker or colored pencil) - small index cards - 8 popsicle sticks for week 2
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
All activities will be reviewed and given feedback through private messages.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
In addition to the Outschool platform, I may use Google links and Pear Deck, and/or Kahoot. You will not have to have any accounts or passwords for what we use.
