In this flexible schedule 4-week class, children will dive into the wonderful world of maps, giving them creative ways to use their reading and writing skills as they learn about different types of maps and become map-makers themselves.

Class Experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 2
The overarching goal of this class is to spark children's excitement for using their current literacy skills in playful and meaningful ways both as they participate in class and afterwards at home.  I believe that learning to read and write is a process that develops gradually with support, time and authentic opportunities to use their developing skills.  The way each child engages with the activities in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development (they may be drawing, writing letters and/or words, recognizing symbols, letters and/or words).  The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to inspire them to use their current skills in new ways.  Learners will also learn map vocabulary, some of the ways maps can be used and different types of maps that exist.  
I have a Masters in early childhood and inclusive education with an emphasis on literacy.  I have been an educator for 20 years and am passionate about teaching literacy skills that support a lifelong love of reading and writing.  I see all children as capable individuals who are motivated to learn when their interests are honored and they are encouraged to make their own discoveries.  
Basic supplies for writing/drawing (paper, crayons, markers and/or pencils)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
