Class Experience

Students will learn to spell and read a new group of words each week. They will also be able to recognize word chunks that will help when decoding longer words.
Students will receive a copy of the group story we write using the word families. They can use this, as well as the hand-out,  to practice reading the words. 
A hand out will be provided for each week's class. Students will need a pencil and eraser.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
