Class Experience

Learners will:
 1. Be introduced to common word families.
 2. Learn to read and write words through predictable patterns and rhymes.
 3. Demonstrate understanding through class participation. 
 4. Increase confidence in reading and speaking in a small group setting. 
There is no weekly assigned homework, but I encourage parents to review the presented word families each week. Repetition and practice foster learning and will improve reading faster. 
I will provide weekly worksheets that will be used in class. They will be sent to students on the Sunday before class. Students are welcome to print these and fill them out during class. If a printer is not available, students are always welcome to use paper or a whiteboard in class to practice spelling/writing skills. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
