Class Experience

Students will strengthen their phonemic awareness, and phonics skills and transfer them to reading and writing of on level texts. 
I have taught elementary school for the past 8 years from early years to grade 4 in international school settings.  I have worked with both the British National Curriculum and the US Common Core State Standards.  I have spent the past two years teaching second-grade at a US curriculum school.  I have a teaching degree from Arizona State with a Structured English Immersion endorsement.  I am also currently completing my masters degree in Educational Technology with an emphasis on individualized learning. 
There will be outside of class work for this course.  Students will be expected to use the skills that they are working on in either a reading or writing activity each day.  As all kids should be reading even during the summer for 20-30 minutes a day, this could be reading to themselves, or listening to read alouds or other activities there should not be much disruption to a typical schedule.  Some activities such as finding beginning or ending sounds could also happen in a car looking at billboards or restaurant names. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
