There are so many playful ways for children to use their emerging reading and writing skills. In this one-time class, the focus is board games. We will talk about board games that learners play at home. Then, we take a close-up look at a few examples, to see how board games include pictures, words, numbers, and symbols.

The overarching goal of this class is to spark children's excitement for using their current literacy skills in playful and meaningful ways both in class and afterward at home. I believe that learning to read and write is a process that develops gradually with support, time, and authentic opportunities to use their developing skills. The way each child engages with the activities in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development (they may be drawing, writing letters, words and/or sentences). The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to inspire them to use their current skills in new ways.
I have a Master's degree in early childhood and inclusive education with an emphasis on literacy. I have been an educator for 20 years and am passionate about teaching literacy skills that support a lifelong love of reading and writing. I see all children as capable individuals who are motivated to learn when their interests are honored and they are encouraged to make their own discoveries.
2 files available upon enrollmentPlease bring a few sheets of paper and something to draw/write with (any of the following: pencils, crayons, markers). Upon enrolling in the class, you will receive an optional game board template that can be printed out. Learners are welcome to either use the template or blank sheets of paper to design their game boards.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
