Parents- Please complete this form, at least the day prior to our first class. It will allow me to get to know your child a little better and choose rewards based on their interests.

Since this course spans over two weeks I highly suggest using the class workmats to review words taught and practice the vocabulary with the students. The goal is for them to understand what a "closed syllable word" is and what makes it a closed syllable word. When students have a strong understanding of the ¨why¨ (why is the vowel short?) it will help them significantly when they are reading more advanced multi-syllabic words. You can always use the daily sheets after class to continue practicing the skills we did in class. Also we will meet 4 days but there are 5 days of lessons provided. You may follow my format and practice that 5th day with your child. Ways you can extend:  Write out each word from the sentences provided and have them "build sentences¨ with those cards. They should determine sentence order (words with capitals at the beginning, punctuation at the end).

-A document will be provided, which needs to be printed, for the 5 day course: ------I would suggest getting 5 sheet protectors. Place the pages in the sheets protectors back to back (each day is two pages so it should be double sided in the sheet protector). -Dry Erase Marker and Eraser -(optional)- Other writing tools- pencil, magna doodle, whatever your child feels more comfortable writing with. They can write directly on the document (in the sheet protector) or they can do the writing portion using another writing tool.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The teacher will assess through observation, using logs to track accuracy and fluency while listening to each student read 3-5 words independently. 
2 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
