Class Experience

An important goal for emergent readers is being able to listen to, comprehend and a retell a story to better understand what they have read and apply that knowledge to lifelong learning.  In this class, students will improve their reading skills by listening to and singing along to an engaging, upbeat story, that involves a lesson about Pete the Cat staying calm when things go wrong.  After the story, students will learn a brief overview about how retelling a story works as the teacher retells this story using props.  Lastly, the students will complete an activity involving a worksheet to extend their learning from this class.
Whether your child is finishing Kindergarten or entering Kindergarten in the fall, this lesson covers several standards of the National Common Core for Kindergarten including: Literature and Speaking and Listening. 
*Please note we will be talking a lot about colors so it would be beneficial if your child knows his/her color before this class.
As a former Kindergarten teacher, I know how important it is to model a love of reading to emergent and beginning readers to keep students on task.  It is also important to cover topics that are mandatory to teach in a school setting.  I base reading lessons off of standards from the National Common Core.  I try to deliver engaging,age appropriate lessons to my students to combine both aspects.
No homework but the students may want to finish their worksheet if they do not finish it by the end of class.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Please download the I Love My Shoes worksheet to use during class. It would also be helpful if students know their colors prior to this class.
During the part of the lesson that involves the retell, students will answer questions about the story.  This will be done verbally and by use of thumbs up, thumbs down.  Students will also be encouraged to sing along during the story and guess what color Pete's shoes will turn as we travel through the story. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
