Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I have highlighted below the student learning goals expected after each week of completed lessons.  Keep in mind that we will review these skills progressively throughout the week - not all in one day.  Each week is designed to become more challenging for the student, however, this is not a lectured style class.

During the next 8-weeks, the learner will be able to (independently or with teacher assistance):

1. Identify uppercase letters
2. Identify the parts of a book
3 Identify real vs pretend
4. Identify rhyming words
6. Identify numbers 1-10 by rote counting and one to one correspondence
7. Identify some comparison and preposition words (i.e big/small, more/less, above/beneath)
10. Identify basic shapes and their characteristics
11. Identify colors and color words
12. Sorting, classifying, and patterns

We will also review the days of the week, the months of the year, the weather, and the season.

This is not an exhaustive list of exactly what I will say or do during a live class, and please keep in mind that working with pre-k children requires flexibility.  These are merely goals.  Every child will reach each goal at their own pace.  We're here to have fun!

I have worked with preschool/elementary children for the past 12 years.  Every child is unique in their own way.  Every child requires differing levels of attention and practice.

If you want your child to succeed, pay attention to their individual needs and interests first, but at the same time, be consistent in your efforts in teaching them.  Establish a time and a place that you will sit with them every day to complete "school time".  Consistency will help them to develop expectations for what is coming next.
Additional enrichment activities will be sent to you prior to each new learning week to support each week’s learning goals.  These activities will be downloadable PDF resources printable upon demand according to the suggested enrichment plan for that week.  The suggested enrichment packet will be based upon that week’s lesson content and additional challenges for your child's learning.  

Enrichment activities are encouraged to be completed Monday-Friday (at least 10-15 minutes a day) and especially on the days that your child does not have a live class with me.  We will not review these assignments during class, but you are highly encouraged to review them with your child to further enhance your child’s learning outcomes.  I also LOVE to receive pictures of your child's completed work in a private message!  This also boosts their motivation to complete their assignments each week!
PDF enrichment packets should be printed on a weekly basis. It also recommended and encouraged to provide your learner with a whiteboard/dry erase marker for writing activities. If they are not able to write fluently, you can substitute with alphabet letter magnets so they can spell words we practice in class. Students may also need these basic supplies to complete weekly enrichment activities: 1. scissors 2. glue 3. crayons 4. pencil 5. markers You will need access to a printer to print the weekly materials that I will provide.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Here is a link to an assessment to help you track your child's learning progress this summer! This assessment will provide you with a checklist of skills to assess where your child stands developmentally and academically.  With defined assessment results, you will be able to focus on helping your child sharpen and improve skills they have challenges with to promote their preparedness for Kindergarten.

Here is the link to this resource (right now it is free!)
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
