  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I am also a veteran homeschool mom.  I have homeschooled all of my children.  I am a big believer in adapting the course content to each students learning style.  There are three basic learning styles: auditory (hearing), visual (seeing), and tactile (touching).  In each lesson I strive to address all three learning styles.  Colorful google slides are used for visual learners, and the STEM and craft projects are ideal for tactile learners.  I look forward to seeing you in the classroom.  Mrs. Lori 
I will post PDF's and additional reading material that the students may complete after the class if they wish. I encourage all students to bring a notebook to class although it is not required. 
We will have a Diorama project in this class. ** This project is optional
Materials Needed: 
Empty box 
Animal cutouts (I will send you the PDF ) 
Crayons/ markers
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will send out worksheets and reading materials each week prior to class.  I also post videos and additional reading material in the classroom page.
