Class Experience

Learners will be able to correctly identify the phonetic sound of each letter of the alphabet. Learners will master phonemic awareness, segmenting and blending skills necessary for confident phonetic reading. In Camp 2, learners will master 8 digraphs: sh, ar, ch, or, ai, ee, oa, oo. In Camp 3, learners will master 8 more digraphs: a-e, i-e, o-e, u-e, ou, oi, er, igh. Learners will improve lowercase print handwriting skills. 
Lead Montessori Teacher and Music Specialist for almost 3 decades. Bachelor's of Music Education. Certified by the most rigorous Montessori training program in North America (Association Montessori Internationale).
Optional practice reading and writing at home is encouraged. A dotted font word list for guided writing and visual copying will be provided to each enrolled learner each week. Pencil grip may be briefly addressed in class, but will need to be reinforced at home. 
Please bring writing supplies to class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
As a Lead Montessori teacher with 28 years of full time classroom experience, I'm adept at assessing student understanding as the lesson progresses. The pace of each session will be adjusted according to the students’ needs. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
