This class is based on the Science of Reading and includes both phonological awareness activities as well as phonics activities. Explicit and systematic instruction in both is crucial for children to become successful readers. There are many skills involved in the reading process, but without the foundational knowledge of how letter sounds work together to form words, children are left using other "reading" strategies (many of which are no more than guessing at the correct word) that will...

I have many years of experience in the classroom teaching young learners. I have received extensive training in teaching reading and writing specifically and have spent the largest part of my teaching career in first grade, which is arguably the most pivotal grade for learning to read.
1 file available upon enrollmentUpon enrollment, each student will receive a small packet to be printed. The packet will include letter cards as well as a few additional pages that will be used throughout the course. It is advised that you create a folder to store your child's papers and other supplies for class. The letter cards will need to be cut out and kept in a small ziplock bag. Materials needed for every class are: a small mirror (for observing correct letter formation), marker board, marker, paper towel or eraser, crayons, 3 pennies, letter cards, and any papers that have been printed. There will be papers to print upon enrollment and there will also be a few papers to print that will be posted each week. (I always post papers well in advance of class to give time for them to be printed before class.) It is VERY helpful for your child to come to class prepared with their materials! We cover a lot of material each class and we want to make the most of our time!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
-I will make informal assessments throughout each class period. I will be taking notes as to what each child is having success with/struggling with in order to tailor future lessons to fit the needs of the group. I want to see each child have success in my classes!
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
