Class Experience

Students will enjoy learning through songs and review material that will prepare them for advanced reading. Each student will sharpen foundational skills such as letter recognition, phonics, and numbers. We will practice properly tracing words, sight words, read and write sentences. Each week, we will also incorporate a critical thinking skill such as the following:
-rhyming words
-positional words such as "above, below, in front, behind"
-more or less
-big or small
-long and short
-up or down
-in or out
-hot or cold
-matching skills
- what's different/the same?
-comprehension skills
-following directions
I have been in education for over 20 years and have had the privilege of teaching little ones how to read and write. I'm thrilled to teach students how to read through phonics!
There is no homework for this class, however, I provide helpful worksheets each week to download for letter blends, words, sentences, and math skills. 
*Worksheets and the weekly schedule are made available on the class page every Monday morning.
Please bring the following to class: 1. Worksheets or lined paper/white boards to class for writing practice. Plain paper does not help students properly form letters/numbers. 2. Crayons, markers, legos (anything that shows color). The slides are color coded, so student answer by showing the color that matches their answer. 3. Pencils with "grips". Pencil grips help young students properly hold their pencils. You can find these in the school supply section at stores like Walmart, Target, and Amazon.
Upon request, parents will be given feedback detailing strengths and weaknesses of their students. 
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
With young students, a parent nearby can help in case a child needs assistance or help to stay attentive. Also, please help your student with the mute and unmute functions in zoom. I do mute students if backgrounds become noisy, but I cannot unmute students in the classroom.
Please note that Outschool policy states only enrolled students can be seen on camera. Parents/Adults supervising students can help but must remain off camera.
