Class Experience

1. Students will learn the proper spellings of fourth-grade-level words and their usage in the English language. 
2. Special focus on phonemic awareness, homophones, and words that just don't fit the "rules".
I am a state certified Elementary Teacher who has become aware of the absence of structured spelling instruction in the schools today. In my private reading tutoring practice, I have watched my students become strong and independent spellers by using my approach.
Homework is assigned after the first two live meetings of the week to practice the word list.
Students will only need lined writing paper and a pencil for the first and third live lesson of each week. Colored pencils or fine tipped markers and either lined or unlined paper will be required to participate in the second lesson of the week.  Any other documents needed will be found in the classroom for downloading and/or printing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
On the third live class day, we will take a spelling test and check our work.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
