Class Experience

Students will learn the letter sounds, as well as practice writing the letter symbol. Each lesson will incorporate phonemic awareness exercises for beginning sounds, fine motor skills with play dough to build hand muscles, and written practice of the letter symbols. Students will be introduced how to combine the sounds learned to read words. Students do not need any letter sound knowledge to be successful in this class. 
For 18 years, I have taught primary students. I began my teaching experience in PreK, then I moved to first grade for fourteen years. I have taught kindergarten for the last two years. During that time, I completed my Master's Degree in Brain Based Teaching of Literacy. My teaching style is hands-on and I use many visuals for the students. I am able to incorporate many strategies to meet the needs of all learners. 
The provided worksheet has an additional handwriting practice and picture identification for practice outside of class. There is also a play dough mat for each letter symbol. (This is to support practice after class and is not seen as "homework.")
A two-page handout will be sent before each session. Students will need: One can of play dough One marker (I have found markers to work best, as then I can see the writing when students share.) One dry erase board with marker, and eraser
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is appropriate for learners who have had no exposure to letters and sounds, as well as learners who need review or support with letter sounds. This class must have two learners attend. If there are not two learners 24 hours before class begins, I will message you with the time options for another section. 

Parental Guidance: Learners will need a can of dough or soft modeling clay to use to make letters. Please make sure your learner has a dough that is appropriate for use. Some dough/clay may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease.
