Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will have fun interacting with other animal and rainforest enthusiasts in our online classroom.
Students will learn how to use a graphic organizer to gather facts from informational text and internet resources.  
Students will read for information, ask questions, complete a speaking and listening rubric, give an oral report, and receive immediate feedback from the teacher and their peers.
I've made three trips to the tropical rain forest in Costa Rica.  At one time, I dreamed of moving there to open a school on the beach. I imagined teaching with squawking birds and howling monkeys as the background music in my tropical outdoor classroom. That dream never came true and instead, the high desert of Nevada became my home.  Luckily I had the kindergarten through 4th-grade students in my public school classroom join me in studying this fascinating topic every year.  This was one of my favorite projects of the school year and it was loved by parents and students as well.  Join me! 

**If your student needs accommodations please let me know and we will work together to ensure that they have the best possible class experience.***
Homework: Students will be asked to do some of the work on their poster board independently.  We will do as much as possible during class.  Students will need to practice their oral report by speaking as if they ARE the creature they chose to research.  For example, "I am a howler monkey.  I’m a mammal because I was born alive. I'm an herbivore because my favorite foods are fruit, nuts, leaves, and plants".
Students will need:
Poster board 22"x 28" (55 x 71 cm) or cardboard cut to approximate size
Markers or Crayons
Teacher will provide a graphic organizer ahead of time.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
