Class Experience

This class is taught in English.

2. Students will be able to identify initial, medial, and final sounds in words.
3. Students will be able to hear the number of syllables in words.
4. Students will be able to divide, code,  and read multisyllabic words.
5. Students will spell words with increasing accuracy, with attention given to proper punctuation and capitalization in spelling dictation and quick writes.

7.  Students will write complete sentences with correct capitalization and end punctuation.
8. Students will learn to write cursive letters.
The student should be reading each night for a minimum of 25 minutes.
I will occasionally assign passages for oral reading as repeated practice. It is helpful if a family member can listen to the child read and provide feedback. 
Please have the following supplies ready to go for each class: A three-ring binder, 7 dividers(or stickies) to mark sections, looseleaf paper or grade-level handwriting tablet, a pencil, an eraser, colored pencils, index cards, markers, and the ability to print a few weekly pages for lessons A whiteboard and wet-erase markers and a small mirror are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, but not required. Upper and lower-case magnetic letters are recommended. *****I will send a file upon enrollment. New files will be sent weekly or bi-weekly.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Ongoing, informal assessments will be given to measure student progress.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need to print weekly pages for the student binder.
