Class Experience

Students will focus on a phonics based format for learning how to read.  The teacher will introduce sight words using writing exercises and also in reading practice as well.  Students will learn letter sounds, blending, early writing using invented spelling, sight words, and early reading comprehension.  
As a certified Reading Specialist in the state of PA, I have obtained my M.Ed in Reading and teaching reading is my true passion.  I have helped many students become better readers in my seven years of public teaching experience.  I have used small group instruction to help identify student skill needs and helping to fill those gaps.  
Students will be given accounts for some learning app games.  Because the teacher provides the app access, there is no cost to the learner to access the games.  This cost is part of the cost of the course.  Students will be provided access codes from the teacher for the games. 
Since the class is based on student need, the teacher will be in constant communication with the families. 

Teacher can provide resources for students to use outside of class.  Teacher can suggest reading sets for students if need be.  Parent must inquire regarding reading sets. 

We will use online games and activities for additional practice outside of class.    
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each week, the teacher makes notes of student strength and weakness in order to help create the next lesson.  Assessments include kidwriting attempts, running records, and informal assessments of skills being rehearsed.  Also, teacher can track student progress in the games assigned to them for use outside of class. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Parent participation outside of class will be required.  Parents will need to listen to their child read, using the cues provided by the teacher when the child miscues.  Parents will also be provided resources to help the students succeed.
