Class Experience

Students will learn the first 26 phonograms, identify the first and last sound in a word, segment words with two and three sounds, distinguish between vowels and consonants, learn the short vowel sounds, choose the correct vowel for a word, exchange vowels to make new words, spell words containing short a, i, o, u, and e, learn how to capitalize names, understand what a syllable is, count syllables, and learn phonograms th, sh, and ch.
I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham and have used the Orton-Gillingham, Barton, and All About Spelling methods with struggling and non-struggling learners.
Every lesson will provide opportunities for additional practice.  Homework is not required but practicing consistently will help solidify skills.
Pencil Paper (you may use the provided paper or your own) Letter tiles (print from resources provided) Tracking sheets for adults (provided)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
An informal assessment using a phonogram tracking sheet will be provided for an initial and end assessment of the first 26 phonograms.  Feedback from activities and online games will be provided.  
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will receive a link to each Nearpod lesson in our Outschool classroom.  This will take them directly to our lessons for the week.  Uploaded lessons to YouTube are embedded within the Nearpod lesson and will not direct your learner to YouTube.  Some Nearpod lessons will use Kahoot.  Learners will be asked to open a webpage to play a game.  This will open the specific Kahoot game in a smaller window.  No login is necessary to play.
I will be using strategies from Orton-Gillingham based multisensory programs.  These include Orton-Gillingham, Barton, and All about Spelling.  We will be using Nearpod to access lessons.  Videos from YouTube and games from Kahoot are included in Nearpod lessons.  Please see Parental Guidance for more information on this.
