In this ongoing literacy skill building class designed for dog lovers ages 10-12, students will talk about a specific "Puppy Place" book each class, read excerpts of their favorite parts of the book, and learn specific literary skills.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 6
Each book club class will take a deep dive into one aspect of literature as well as discuss the three main objectives for primary literary development: plot, setting, characters. Students will build communication skills when they are given an opportunity to review the week's book and tell the class what they liked and disliked about it. Team-building and negotiation skills will be developed as the class must decide on a star rating for each book after everyone has had a chance to give their review. I will hold a short ( less than 5 minutes) story time during each class in order to allow children to experience a weekly read aloud. Every class will culminate in a fun puppy-inspired craft.  This will enable the students to develop their communication skills even further since free talk will be an expectation during this time of the lesson
I hold a master's degree with an emphasis in reading.  I teach special education and am adept at keeping younger students focused and excited during online learning. 
Homework Offered
Students will be much more successful in this class if they read the books ahead of time, but they are welcome to attend even if they have not read the book.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Students will be expected to purchase or borrow a copy of the Puppy Place book of focus for each lesson.  In addition, simple art and craft items will be necessary for the puppy craft; a list of items will be emailed prior to each class.

I live in Alaska where it is light for days on end during the summer but dark and cold during the winter.  I have six children, five grandchildren, three cats, two dogs and two rabbits. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, skiing, reading and crochet.
