Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to spell words with the indicated patterns, extend spelling patterns to spell like-sounding words, use correct spelling in their independent writing, determine the main idea of a text, identify story elements, point of view, cause and effect, fact and opinion, and begin utilizing non-fiction text features such as headings, graphs, diagrams, etc.  They will also identify and implement parts of speech such as nouns, verbs, linking and helping verbs, adjectives, adverbs, articles, prepositions, and conjunctions.  They will understand the different parts and types of sentences and learn to avoid sentence fragments and run-on sentences in their independent writing.
I am an experienced and licensed elementary teacher.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  I love helping kids learn to read and write well!  Your kiddos will be in good hands, I promise!
Students will generally be asked to complete a spelling page, a reading page, and a language arts page each day, although some pages may be completed in class.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Spelling quizzes will be given each Thursday and completed reading and language arts pages may be posted in the classroom and reviewed by the teacher.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will be using Reading A-Z on Thursdays for students to select the texts they wish to read.  Reading A-Z is a website used by countless teachers with thousands of kid appropriate titles at various reading levels which include activities and discussion questions.  These books and activities will be screen shared by me with the students during class.  NO STUDENT ACCOUNTS ARE NEEDED AND NO DATA ABOUT STUDENTS IS COLLECTED BY READING A-Z.  There is a parental permission form attached to the welcome message which parents are asked to complete and return to the teacher using the instructions provided.

Whiteboard.fi is a division of the Kahoot company and allows me to quiz the students on their spelling in real time using whiteboard screens.  Each student has their own screen and are not able to see each other's during the quiz, but I can see everyone's which allows me to assess their mastery of the spelling words.  The website is accessed using a link I post in the chat box and does NOT require students to have an account nor does it collect any information about them.  After the quiz, I often allow the students a few minutes to use the drawing tools available on whiteboard just for fun and I then screen share my screen so they can see each other's drawings.

Parents may also wish to supervise the use of scissors if needed.
We will use the following texts available from Amazon.  These texts will be used for Sessions 2-4 as well.
