This is a one-time class where students will explore the globe in search for geckos. We will conduct our search via text and video clips. We will then conduct our investigation to learn all about them: what are geckos, where do they live, what do they do, what do they eat, how do they get their food? Once we have our data, we will create articles by writing and illustrating to demonstrate what we have learned. The class will be conducted in an engaging, and interactive manner. We will have...
Students will learn about geckos. They will learn about geography as we conduct our search for geckos. They will work on reading and writing strategies as we read about geckos. Students will also learn about teamwork, health and fitness and being kind to each other.
I have been teaching elementary students, including struggling learners, for over 10 years. My hope and goal for my courses is to help instill a love of reading. That happens through engagement, confidence and student success. That is what brings me to Outschool. Informally assessing learners will allow me to identify a student's challenges. We will work together to build their reading skills while having fun!
There is no homework for this class.

Students are informally assessed through their participation in class.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will have opportunities to participate in very simple stretches and exercises that are completely optional (such as stretching arms up to the ceiling, or doing a jumping jack). They should have some additional space to do so, if they choose to perform the exercise. They should also have a water bottle close to them (optional). This is to keep students alert, engaged and having fun. It is completely optional.
