Description

Class Experience

Students will: 
participate in an online book club in a fun and engaging way
practice oral language skills to communicate with others in the class. 
strengthen their writing skills as we work to respond and write based on the nonfiction facts.
have opportunities to read aloud to others (if desired) to help fluency and oral reading skills. practice proper sentence writing (capitalization, punctuation, etc..) when engaged in any of our writing activities.
I am excited to offer this class on Outschool as my son is a huge fan of the My Weird School series. We love reading them together and it's been the spark that has ignited his desire to read. Once a reluctant reader, these books have pulled him into the school world of AJ and his friends and he has been reading ever since!  
As an experienced and Nationally Board Certified teacher, I look forward to helping develop or continue your child's love of reading with this series. Reading is my passion and a book club is a great way for your child to engage in reading in a meaningful way. I love to connect other areas of learning and these nonfiction books create a natural way to integrate other subject areas.
You'll find my enthusiastic style and upbeat personality helps kids feel comfortable in a group setting. I love working with all learners and work to create a positive learning environment. I hope you'll check out my book club and share in the joy of reading!
Students will be asked to read 2 - 3 chapters outside of class. If they fall behind, they are still welcome to join in the following week. 

I will provide optional "challenges" to provide your child to engage with the text outside of class. Any work that families wish to be reviewed by the teacher can be sent to me for feedback. 
Please make sure you have a copy of the book for this class. I always encourage families to check their local library if possible to avoid having to buy the book. If you have trouble finding a specific book, please let me know.  A hardcopy or digital copy will work for this class.

If any handouts are needed for our activities or discussion, I will provide them no later than 24 hours before the start of the class. It is helpful to have a printer, but not a requirement. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As a teacher, librarian, and mom of three young children, I always encourage parents to preview any text to see if it is appropriate for their child. If you have any questions, feel free to read online reviews about the book series.
