Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will be assessed informally through participation, questioning, and by cutting a snowflake by following verbal 2 and 3 step directions given by the teacher.
I have enjoyed 24 wonderful years in the public school system and have the following experience:

*Currently teaching middle school ELA
Elementary Education--certified (with preschool, elementary, and middle school teaching experience)
Preschool Special Education--certified
Gifted and Talented Endorsement
Reading Endorsement
Education Administration
Parents can practice at home, providing students clear 1, 2, and 3 step auditory directions (depending on their proficiencies.)
1. Be sure you have your child's attention and eye contact.
2.  Minimize distractions.
3.  Speak calmly and quietly. Tell them--don't ask.
4.  Give short instructions 1 at a time.  
5.  Number your directions. (First, do ___.  Then, do ___).
6.  Use “wait time.” Give students a minute to think before repeating your direction.
7.  Check for understanding. Ask them to repeat directions back to you.
8.  Repeat the direction if needed.  If the child if still not able to complete the direction, break the directions down into smaller components and repeat.
Your child will need white paper and scissors. "A Very Special Snowflake," by Don Hoffman will be read aloud to your child. Because the story is read aloud, there is no need to purchase a copy of the book. I will read it to your child.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed informally through participation, questioning, and by completing a snowman drawing by following verbal 2 and 3 step directions given by the teacher.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class requires that young students use scissors.  While the teacher will provide directions, close proximity and supervision should be provided by an adult to ensure the child's safe use of scissors.
