Class Experience

Students will learn and progress at their own level in the following foundational reading skills:
phonological awareness
spelling-letter sounds
sight words
phonics / syllables / morphemes
reading connected text
spelling/writing  instruction (letter formation if needed; sentence formation and mechanics; encoding words)
I am a certified reading specialist with a Masters Degree in reading, and have taught in a variety of capacities in public schools and universities.  These roles include teaching kindergarten/first/or second grade classrooms, and work as a K-5 school Reading Specialist; teaching undergraduate reading courses at the university level; assisting new teachers in the role of Mentor Teacher; and training teachers in reading programs through school staff development sessions throughout California.  I am now retired from public school teaching and enjoy bringing the joys of reading success to learners through Outschool!
Students will practice their connected reading skills and sight words by practicing the stories taught during each session.
Supply list: * dry erase marker (the thin, but not fine point, kind) * eraser for dry erase marker pen (this can be a rolled up old sock) * several plastic sheet protector pockets or plastic pockets that you can slip an 8x11 paper into (this will serve as an erasable "white board" substitute to place the lined writing paper into, as well as to use for storage of reference sheets). * Access to a printer for printing spelling pages and story sheets. You will need a few sheets printed at the beginning of the course, and story sheets throughout. However, throughout the course, if you prefer to have 'digital copies' of the stories instead, please let me know. * If choosing paper stories, have a folder to keep the story sheets organized. * Index sized cards - as needed (for Beginning Level student flash cards only)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment is embedded into the SIPPS program and is used to determine next steps in instruction.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All material will be virtual and sent as print downloads.  You will also want to make flash cards of the words I send you to practice.
