Class Experience

Students will learn about pioneer life and the life of Laura Ingalls. Note that there is not any racism in these early books.  They focus on her home and family life and their day to day activities.  Students will learn the strategies that make reading more interesting and entertaining.  They will learn to ask questions, evaluate, make connections, monitor, infer, and predict.  All of these strategies will help them through the years in school and outside of school.  Instead of just listening to the story, we dissect it and pull out the significant parts.  
I enjoy teaching classes that have a human interest aspect to them. I have found this to be an easy way for the students to become interested very quickly in what I am teaching them and then they are much easier to teach the “boring” things too.  They tend to not realize they are learning that “boring” stuff because it isn’t boring anymore.  I enjoy teaching about Pioneer life and especially Little House on the Prairie. I have visited much of where she lived.  I hope to share with your child the joy of learning about Laura and her way of life. 
A handout for their lapbook will be attached in the classroom each week.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In these early books, there are no racist references.
