Class Experience

During this class, we will focus on 
-reading comprehension
I have enjoyed 27 years in the public school system and have the following experience:

Middle School English Language Arts
Elementary Education--certified (with preschool, elementary, and middle school teaching experience)
Preschool Special Education--certified
Gifted and Talented Endorsement
Reading Endorsement
Education Administration
Virtual Learning Instruction 
No homework is assigned in this class, other than reading chapters for any class the students miss so that they are prepared for discussion, writing, and background knowledge.  Parents can also practice reading comprehension strategies at home:
1. Be sure you have your child's attention.
2.  Minimize distractions.
3. As you read, have students repeat phrases back to you.
4. Ask yourself questions while you read…”I wonder why…”
5.  Use “wait time.” Give students a minute to think before repeating your question.
6.  Check for understanding. Ask them to repeat the question back to you.
7.  Help students make connections between the book and their own experiences!
8.  For emergent writers, always pair writing and drawing together!  Draw and write with the story in mind!
The following materials may be helpful to students as we read, practice vocabulary, and make connections in the story: -paper -pencil -highlighter -colored pencils -The book Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren (The teacher will share the book through the document camera, so it is not necessary to have a copy. However, some students may prefer to have their own.)
Students will be given opportunities for speaking and oral reading.  They will be assessed informally through participation, questioning, and by completing a written response and drawing based on the chapters we read. Students are asked to complete their reading/writing assignment if they do not finish before class is over.  Students/parents are welcome and encouraged to send the student's work to me through Outschool if they would like it proofread and/or would like some additional feedback on the student's writing.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
