In this ongoing 3 day a week class, emerging readers* will work toward the ultimate goal of becoming an independent reader while also making friends in a cheerful classroom environment. Incoming students should already be able to recognize the letters of the alphabet and be familiar with all of their phonetic sounds. However, the students are not expected to be able to read very many, if any, words in the beginning. Each class will continue to reinforce the phonetic sounds of the alphabet...
* Sight words - This is the main focus of the class. Sight words are the best way for the student to build a working vocabulary to jump start their reading. * Phonics * Writing alphabet letters * CVC Word families (ran, tan, man, can...etc.) * Reading simple beginner sentences and stories relying heavily on sight words. * Socialization and description skills through the end of class free-talk session.
A weekly at-home packet will also be provided after the first class of every week and the last class so that students can practice what they have been learning in the classroom. The after-class work is provided as an enhancement to the class, not as a homework requirement. I will leave it up to the parents' discretion if they feel their students will benefit from the after-class activities. My top priority is that the students are able to recognize and read the 6 sight words by the end of the week. Sight words, by their nature, cannot be sounded out and must, therefore, be memorized by sight. Learning sight words is the fastest way to build students' reading vocabulary. If you can only manage one thing from the packet please focus on the sight words.
1 file available upon enrollmentLearners should come to class with either elementary sized lined paper with a dark pencil, marker, or crayon. Students may also use a dry erase board if they prefer.
Learners will be assessed throughout the classes. A group email detailing the week's accomplishments will be sent out after the last class. The teacher will email individualized feedback to students as needed.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Not required but a set of Dolch or Fry sight words would be handy to help your student learn the 220 most common sight words. This class will focus on level 1 and 2 cards from this set that can be purchased, if you choose, on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S9R7K89/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
