Class Experience

Students will learn about the weekly topic.  
Students will gain confidence speaking in a virtual classroom.  
Students will develop a love of reading and learning. 
Students will complete a craft.
I have provided literacy (storytime) programs to preschoolers and elementary students for over 20 years.  During these programs, early literacy and educational topics such as colors, letters, animals, counting, numbers, seasons, weather, and much more were presented. I have a master’s degree in Library and Information Sciences, a BA in English and Art, and hold teaching certifications for English 5-12th grades and Art K-12th grades.  I am the president of the nonprofit, The Literacy Alliance (, and author of the children's picture book, Peas Let Her be a Princess (
Each week a classroom post will be made with information regarding the craft supplies needed for the following week.
A supply list for the craft materials needed will be posted in the classroom each week.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance is needed to complete the craft.

Muting policy - It is my hope that all students will be unmuted during the class.  This allows each student the opportunity to participate in the class and be engaged in the material.  My classes are designed to be interactive.  I encourage group responses with questions such as [What color is this?], [What sound does a dog make?], and [Let me hear you say Big A!].

However, as these classes take place in the home, background noises, humming, random conversations can cause disruptions.  If there are disruptive noises, I will mute an individual or all students.  This will ensure that everyone can hear and enjoy the stories and rhymes.  During craft time, all students are encouraged to be unmuted.

Also, I acknowledge that every child is unique and if you would like your child to be muted for the storytime, I completely respect and support that decision.

Spotlight policy – The ‘spotlight’ feature in Zoom allows an instructor to ‘spotlight’ an individual video.  This means the spotlighted individual remains the largest video and is uninterrupted by other videos.  In order to provide your child with the best possible online experience, I will ‘spotlight’ myself after students have arrived and class has begun.  However, towards the end of class, I will remove the spotlight.  Then, during the craft time, (if you are on ‘speaker’ view) each student will automatically be the featured video as we discuss the class and craft.
