I have been an ESL (English as a second language) teacher for three years to the age groups 3-7 and am currently teaching my own 4 year old how to read using this same approach. I created "Reading Can Be Puzzling" curriculum and after 6 months of solely using my own lessons with her, my daughter is reading independently at newly 4 years old.
No formal homework will be assigned, but printables will be available for the learner to print out and practice on their own time between lessons.
1 file available upon enrollmentNearPod is necessary for your learner to participate in this course! Please read the full class description above on what NearPod is. About an hour prior to class, I will send out a classroom post containing that day's NearPod hyperlink and code. There are a few different ways you can access the lesson: The hyperlink will take you straight to the NearPod lesson via your browser. The code is for the NearPod app if using a phone or tablet. Upon enrollment, you will receive a welcome email with an attached pdf on how to use NearPod and how to set it up for your learner. NearPod is simple, but if new to using this resource please take 5 minutes to familiarize yourself with it before we start class. You can also message me at any time with questions! I am happy to answer.
There will be no formal assessments, but we do reach out to parents/guardians if we think, as teachers, that your child should be moved into a more difficult course.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class uses NearPod, which is a separate online resource. **NearPod is necessary for your learner to participate in this course!** Parents and/or guardians, please read the announcements page prior to class to get your learner set up before class begins.
