I have been teaching this class on Outschool and it has been fun and successful. Prior to that, I am an experienced teacher of over 27 years and am a Reading Specialist! I LOVE teaching learners how to read, spell, and write!
Each day during class, students are given a decodable passage that has our week's phonics pattern in it. For homework, they are encouraged to go on a "pattern hunt" for our phonics pattern of the week and to read the short passage orally several times in order to build fluency. In addition, students are given an activity that helps them to remember their sight words each week, and they are encouraged to cut this out and glue it into their Reading Journals. 
Because this is a multi-sensory approach to learning to read, each learner will need to have available: shaving cream, pipe cleaners, and/or play-dough. Each learner will also need a small dry erase board (9"x12"), 1 dry erase board eraser, 1 dry erase marker, 1 composition notebook, pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue. Finally, every week students will need to have their printouts ready for class (roughly 4-5 pages per week).
Learners are informally assessed throughout the week and parents receive communication about their progress or any concerns Mrs. Hall has, by Friday of each week. 
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
