This class is designed to help parents be intentional with their young child's learning and provide a hybrid preschool experience (1 class day and then assignments provided for at home). Therefore, it is 2 parts. The first part is when we all meet as a class, one time each week. During class time we will go over a classic rhyme or poem, work on phonemic awareness (word recognition, rhyming, and syllables), introduce a letter and its sound, and read a book. The second part of the class is...
Students will improve their phonemic awareness skills, with an emphasis on being able to produce rhyming words. Students will improve their fine and gross motor skills at a level appropriate to their ability. Students will answer basic comprehension questions (who was the book about, what happened next, what was your favorite part, etc.) on a picture book.
I taught Kindergarten, First, and Second grade for many years and have since homeschooled my boys through the preschool/Kindergarten/First grade years. This class will covers skills I wished students had entering Kindergarten and skills I taught my own children.
Life skills, fine motor skills (including handwriting practice), and gross motor skills are up to the parent to work on throughout the week. Then I always encourage parents to read at least 20 minutes a day to their child.
*Access to a printer each week to print off the practice pages *Short pencils and crayon (golf pencils or broken crayons) *Kid scissors *Washable paint
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
That is up to the parent/guardian to decide. My suggestion is to have a 3 ring binder ready to store and organize all your students work.
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This curriculum is based on what I have done with my children. It is a mixture of ABCJesusLovesMe (the classroom license), Handwriting Without Tears writing curriculum (classroom materials), phonemic awareness activities that come from the Intervention For All Phonological Awareness book, and the website ReadingA-Z (the classroom license), and picture books my children have loved.
