Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn over 100 popcorn words in this 3 part course and practice reading them in sentences.
My oldest daughter is 4 years old and has learned to read with me and my "Reading Can Be Puzzling" curriculum. It is tried and true material and learner approved. 

Professionally, I have been an online ESL (English as a second language) teacher for 3.5 years for ages 3-15. 
There will be no formal homework, however there will be printable booklets containing the lesson sentences. There will be two booklets available per lesson - one that contains all of the mnemonic device photos above the sentences and one without the photos for advanced practice. 
 1 file available upon enrollment

We will use NearPod for every single lesson.
