Description

Class Experience

Academic Skills:
Students will gain experience analyzing fiction text for setting, theme, plot, figures of speech, and character study. 
Life Skills: 
Students will gain experience taking turns, listening, and answering questions with complete sentences/thought patterns.
I've taught Charlotte's Web countless times.  It's a personal favorite due to it's endearing message of true friendship.
Students will have five guided-reading handouts, one for each day to complete as they read. The handout has comprehension questions and an optional writing activity. Students will need to read about 40-50 pages each evening, Monday through Thursday. (Or the students can read half of the book before the first class.) Almost all of the reading is done independently outside of class. Since reading speed varies widely, consider how much time it would take for your student to read the 40-50 pages. A small optional writing activity is also introduced at the end of each class.  Students who wish to receive a grade/assessment will need to finish assignments and have them submitted before Friday's class. A typical 4th or 5th grade student should be able to complete the work in less than an hour and a half each day. 
Students will need a copy of Scholastic Inc. Charlotte's Web to maintain consistency with page numbers assigned by the teacher. It is available on Amazon under the search "Charlotte's Web Scholastic" for under 7 dollars. Students will also need the free app Kahoot or access to www.Kahoot.com during the class times, preferably on a secondary device. Students/parents do not need to create an account on Kahoot. Students are given a pin number to play a challenge/game on my teacher account. The teacher will also post print-outs to the classroom page.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Parents will receive an email informal assessment of the student's participation and reading strengths. A formal grade can be given if requested before the first class. Optional writing activities needing grades will need submitted before the Friday class.
3 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.

About Me

Hello! 
I love teaching grammar and composition skills to students of all ages. When I'm not helping students write more effectively, I'm hosting book groups and book-related programs. I've worked as an elementary, middle school, and high school...
