This 12-week course based on the Orton-Gillingham approach leads learners who are confident readers to improve their skills through the study of affixes, Greek and Latin roots, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, grammar, and writing.

Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Students will improve their understanding of the English language, its history and structure, its grammar and usage rules, and spelling and writing conventions.
I am a certified elementary teacher with years of experience in preschool and second grade. I have also taught ESL for 3 years on-line, and hold an MA in Teaching from Dominican University. I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach through IMSE (30-hour morphology plus course).
Homework Offered
Occasional homework will be assigned. This might include completion of a worksheet, practice with a game, or review of affix/root flash cards (made by students during class). **PLEASE NOTE: Younger learners may need help with the organization of our interactive notebook. Please contact me at any time for instructions to make the notebook something that can be useful for learners during and after our course.***
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Progress reports are available upon request.
Grades Offered
All learners should use a 1-inch 3-ring binder with dividers (5 or more is fine). Print-outs will be provided each week and these should be added to the notebook for student reference (having a 3-hole punch can be very helpful). All learners should bring a whiteboard and marker, as well as a pencil, to each class.

In addition, learners should have a set of notecards that are 4x6 inches and come in 5 colors: yellow, blue, lavender, pink, and green. Links from various sellers included below for your convenience.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Powerpoint presentations and games played on wordwall.net will be displayed via screenshare. Students may review or practice through Kahoot--no account required, I will send a code for you to use. A second device is preferable on days with Kahoot practice (I will send clear information/instructions if/when we use Kahoot). Youtube videos by Arika Okrent may be shared via screenshare as well.

**Links to Wordwall games for additional practice are available in messages sent to parents ONLY when requested by the parent. Learners may access this website only through their parents' account with parental assistance.

Hello Outschool families! Young learners are full of so much curiosity, insight, and natural love of learning! But school can sometimes stifle this love of learning, and small frustrations can become bigger. I love finding fun and innovative ways...
