You do not need to purchase any books for this class or any subscriptions to any sites. Students will be reading books on screen. However, you will need to purchase a small whiteboard and markers for students to use for some of our word activities. (Please do not use paper and a pencil as it is very difficult for me to see their work on the screen.)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
 During a portion of the class, I will be sharing my screen so that children can watch phonics videos such as those on Youtube, HeidiSongs, and PhonicsGarden. Children are briefly watching these videos on my screen and you are not required to create an account for your children to watch these videos.
