Class Experience

US Grade 4 - 6
  • The goal of this class is to help the learner realize the importance of listening for details and to begin to be a better listener by following directions containing an increasing number of details. Also a goal of this class is to improve overall brain fitness to help all types of learners in multiple life skill areas.
For more than three decades, I have successfully helped hundreds of children, teens and adults in public school, private school, homeschool and wellness center settings improve their listening and memory skills. I have a M.S. degree in speech-language pathology and earned a Master's level teaching certification. I am also an Interactive Metronome (IM) Certified Provider. IM is a computer based brain fitness training program. We can all benefit from practice in listening for details. I enjoy having a fun and structured class as I help learners improve their ability to  listen for detail so they can function even better in all aspects of their daily life.
Frequency: Available upon request
Details: Assessments will be informal. As each activity progresses, the learners responses will be checked for correctness. Learners will receive repititions from the teacher or a classmate as needed for success. All learners are expected to be respectful and encouraging to one another.
This class helps support all learners, including those with ADHD, ASD & more by working to improve attention, focus, etc. It is also beneficial to those with executive function needs & dyslexia. It has helped many improve brain function.
Bring at least 2 sheets of blank paper and a pencil with an eraser OR bring a dry erase board with a dry erase marker and something to erase marks.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Some weeks brain fitness games will be included. Occasionally some will involve minimal physical movement. ***Minimal physical activity may involve balancing on one foot, therefore learners should have a chair or sturdy piece of furniture to hold on to for balance when needed***. Please let me know prior to class if your learner is unable to participate in brain games involving physical activity.
