Class Experience

This varies depending on the learner's individual goals. (See class description for possible concepts covered.) 
I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education with a Reading Specialist certification. I have privately tutored many students in reading over the years, including those with learning difficulties. Additionally, I homeschooled my children from preschool through 8th grade. 
REQUIRED MATERIALS: —Please print the "Phonics Boxes" document (link provided in welcome email). It would be preferable to print or mount it on cardstock to make it sturdier. (We will use it multiple times throughout class.) You could also place it in a sheet protector. —ONE of the following two items: —Small white board with dry erase marker and eraser/cloth, OR —Markers/crayons/colored pencils and lined paper (whatever type your child uses) —ONE of the following two items: —A shallow, wide, rectangular container (such as a food storage container) with enough salt or uncooked rice to cover the bottom. A good size is 10 inches long by 6 inches wide. We will use this to trace words. For ongoing classes, you could keep a covered container just for this purpose. OR —A cookie sheet or other wide, shallow surface covered with shaving cream. (If using this, have several cloths or paper towels handy to wipe hands. Some learners may need supervision with this so computers/tablets are not damaged. OPTIONAL: —Pop It fidget toy (any brand or color, with at least 5 bubbles in one row) —Mini flashlight —Play Doh or other non-sticky clay
30 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
