Class Experience

Students will learn to read (decode words), build vocabulary knowledge, improve spelling and writing skills, and increase reading fluency.
There will be no "assigned" homework, but I can share activities that caregivers have the option of using at home with their child to help improve their reading skills.  In my experience, children who are immersed in literacy experiences (from school, home, and tutoring) make the most progress, and the combined efforts can even close the existing reading gap completely.
Please have a piece of textured material in which the student can trace their finger over as needed (it can be fabric, textured paper, sandpaper, clay in a tray, etc.). This will be needed from time to time to assist with letter-reversal work and spelling.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Jamboard
I use informal assessments to discover where to begin with a student, as well as for monitoring progress, and for making instructional decisions.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
