At the end of class, students will have improved their pencil grip, practiced pre-writing shapes, and learned to determine the difference between shapes.
Homework is optional but encouraged. Handouts will be provided to allow the student to continue to practice their pre-writing skills.
4-5 pieces of blank paper, preferably unlined. Pencil or dark-colored crayon.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment will be made informally. The students will show the teacher their written shapes- if they want to share.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please have the child bring 4-5 sheets of paper with them to class with a pencil and/or a dark crayon. Handouts will be provided for after class practice.
