Over five weeks, your child will build phonological awareness. Being able to understand and manipulate sounds is essential for literacy. We'll rhyme and blend our way to reading success, and we'll have fun too!

 Week 1
Lesson 1
Humpty Dumpty
We will identify rhyming words that end in the /all/ sound when reading "Humpty Dumpty". Then, we'll play a rhyming game. We'll clap out the individual words and then syllables. For sound discrimination, we will practice saying and hearing the differences between the following sounds: /m/ and /s/. At the end of class, we'll apply what we learned as we read the book 'Happy Cat and the Hats?' In addition to working on phonological awareness, we will practice discussing our reading.
Lesson 2
Little Miss Muffet
We will identify rhyming words in "Little Miss Muffet." Then, we'll play a rhyming game. We will clap out the individual words and then syllables. We will practice saying and hearing the same and different words for word discrimination. At the end of class, we'll apply what we learned as we read the book 'Jelly and Jam.' In addition to working on phonological awareness, we will practice having discussions about our reading.
 Week 2
Lesson 3
One, two, buckle my shoe
We will identify rhyming words in "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe". Then, we'll play a rhyming game. We will clap out the individual words and then syllables. For sound discrimination, we will practice saying and hearing the differences between the following sounds: /n/ and /f/. At the end of class, we'll apply what we learned as we read the book 'Nuts in My Nest' In addition to working on phonological awareness, we will practice having discussions about our reading.
Lesson 4
Little Boy Blue
We will identify rhyming words in "Little Boy Blue". Then, we'll play a rhyming game. We will clap out the individual words and then syllables. For word discrimination, we will practice telling whether words are the same or different. At the end of class, we'll apply what we learned as we read the book 'The Digging Dog'. In addition to working on phonological awareness, we will practice discussing our reading, making predictions, and expressing opinions about what we've read.
 Week 3
Lesson 5
Jack a' Dandy
We will identify rhyming words in "Jack a' Dandy". Then, we'll play a rhyming game. We'll clap out the individual words and then syllables. For sound discrimination, we will practice saying and hearing the differences between the following sounds: /t/ and /f/. At the end of class, we'll apply what we learned as we read the book 'A Super Special Soup' In addition to working on phonological awareness, we will practice discussing our reading.
Lesson 6
The tall wall
We will practice hearing, manipulating, and discriminating between words that end in /all/. Then, we will play a rhyming game. Next, we'll learn about the initial sounds in words. Today we'll focus on /s/. We'll learn how to blend syllables and blend onset and rime. Our wrap-up includes reading 'Bears and Beans.' We will apply the phonological awareness skills we've learned and we'll practice having good discussions about our reading.
 Week 4
Lesson 7
Dan is a fan
We will practice hearing, manipulating, and discriminating between words that end in /an/. Then, we'll play a rhyming game. Next, we'll learn about the initial sounds in words. Today we'll focus on /t/ and /p/. We'll make silly sentences. Next, we will use what we learned last time to blend syllables and blend onset and rime. Our wrap-up includes reading 'Fox and Frog.' We will apply the phonological awareness skills we've learned, and we'll practice having good discussions about our reading.
Lesson 8
The trout pouts
We will practice hearing, manipulating, and discriminating between words that end in /out/. Next, we'll learn about the initial sounds /r/ and /b/. We'll play a game to reinforce this concept. We'll learn how to blend syllables and blend onset and rime. Our wrap-up includes reading 'Grandpa's Goats.' We will apply the phonological awareness skills we've learned and we'll practice making predictions and having good discussions about our reading.
 Week 5
Lesson 9
The snack shack
We will practice hearing, manipulating, and discriminating between words that end in /ack/. Then, we will play a rhyming game. Next, we'll learn about the initial sounds /k/ and /d/. We'll learn how to blend syllables and blend onset and rime. Our wrap-up includes reading 'Pets are Pests.' We will apply the phonological awareness skills we've learned, and we'll practice making predictions and having good discussions about our reading.
Lesson 10
The host makes a roast
We will practice hearing, manipulating, and discriminating between words that end in /ost/. Next, we'll learn about the initial sounds /f/ and /n/. We'll play a game to practice discriminating between these initial sounds. We'll learn how to blend syllables and blend onset and rime. Our wrap-up includes reading 'The Race.' We will apply the phonological awareness skills we've learned, and we'll practice making predictions and having good discussions about our reading.
  • Students will build phonological awareness. They will be able to identify rhyming words, develop syllable awareness, develop the ability to discriminate between sounds, and they will practice strong listening skills.
I am a certified K-8 Reading teacher. In addition to teaching upper elementary school in the brick-and-mortar classroom for several years, I have also taught thousands of ESL lessons online for students aged 4-14. I currently offer 1:1 virtual reading intervention (based on the Science of Reading) for students in grades 1-8.

Homework
Frequency: included
Feedback: included
Details: I will ask students to think up an example of an initial sound or rhyming word that goes along with what we learned in class. (I will give the specific prompt in class.) This homework is just one more chance to practice what we've learned and apply it to words that matter to them. In the subsequent lessons, we will add these to a word wall. This will constitute one check for understanding.
Assessment
Frequency: included
Details: There will be frequent checks for understanding throughout class. I will have a daily grade sheet that I will use during class to ensure that all students are participating and responding correctly to various prompts. Caregivers should feel free to request a progress update at any time. In addition, I will be communicating regularly with caregivers about what I observe. Our very brief homework assignments, which involve finding or thinking up a word based on a prompt and bringing it to the next class, constitute another form of assessment.
Grading
Frequency: included
Details: Grades are available upon request. I will not assign letter grades, but I do use notes from class and homework to assess student success. The descriptors I use are as follows: Developing proficiency: These are students who are developing their skills and have been exposed to the content, but they are not yet confident in their work. Their responses are accurate less than 60% of the time. Proficient: Students who are growing in confidence and are accurate 61%-80% of the time will be deemed proficient. They still have some work to do, but they are on their way to mastery. Advanced: Students who are completely confident and respond accurately 81-100% of the time have an advanced understanding of the subject matter.
I have experience working with students with many learning differences including ADHD and dyslexia. I meet students where they are, and I can adapt materials to support students. 
Students may wish to have paper and a pencil or a whiteboard and a marker if they enjoy writing what they hear. These are completely optional. I will provide any curriculum materials required for these lessons. 
I will be using Reading A-Z materials in these lessons. Students will never have to access an outside resource or navigate away from the Outschool classroom during class to participate in these lessons.
