Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their oral reading fluency and comprehension skills throughout this course.  They will also learn 5 foundational core oral reading comprehension skills they will use throughout their schooling. 
I have over 20 year of experience teaching in both the public and private setting. I hold an undergrad and master's in Education.  I have two children ages seven and twelve. I homeschool both my children. 
I enjoy teaching reading and comprehension.  Throughout my teaching career and my travels through the world, I am reminded of the importance of comprehension and the impact this skill has on our student's lives.  I teach courses including elementary reading and comprehension, historical fiction book-club, introduction to English as a second language learning, and conversational English for English as a second language learners. 
I look forward to working with your child!  Amy Kaufmann :) 
Students are encouraged to read at their reading level outside of class each day for 15 minutes.  Parents are encouraged to read with their learners when possible to help students develop their vocabulary.

Improvement is contingent on the student's reading habits outside of class. Practice makes perfect! This class is a wonderful supplement but will not be enough as the only source of oral reading and comprehension support for some students. 
We will use PDF reading handouts for each class. You will be able download the site words and reading stories for each class to practice at home with our child.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be informally assessed through the classroom and reading time together. 
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
