Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
1. The students will be able to wave or say hello to other learners, with the option of introducing themselves by saying their names.
2. The students will be able to listen to and follow along with songs and fingerplays.
3. The students will be able to make the hand motions for the songs and fingerplays.
4. The students will be able to say and sing some or all the words in the songs and fingerplays.
5. The students will be able to interact socially with the teacher and other learners in the class.
In my 18 years as a classroom teacher, I taught several students with high functioning autism and other learning disabilities. I also have a grandchild with Down Syndrome, and I am actively involved in her care. This class is not intended to replace therapy with trained professionals. It is instead a social class to help children of all abilities to practice language, communication, and social skills in a fun and inclusive environment.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
