This class is taught in English.
This class sets a positive association with speaking and reading in English. After 6-weeks of attendance, learners will 1) be comfortable using the words, phrases, and concepts they have learned in class and 2) have established the habit of reading one book a day.
> ESL Ms. Christina began her career as an English teacher in Taiwan. > EARLY LITERACY Later, she worked for seven years in the children's department of a public library with a focus on Early Literacy and multilingual programming. > EDUCATION Ms. Christina has a Bachelor of Arts degree in INTERNATIONAL POLITICS and GERMAN. She has a Master of Arts degree in INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS with a language focus on MANDARIN CHINESE.
The homework is to read one book every day, any book in any language. During my early literacy training at the public library, I learned an incredible fact: In just 20 minutes of reading a day — basically one children's book — you are exposed to 1.8 million words in one year. Therefore, Ms. Christina wants each learner to pick a book of their choice, show it during class, then read it for homework. This can be any book in any language, and it can even be the same book every day. Not only will this daily reading habit expose the learner to 1.8 million words in a year, it will instill in them a lifelong love of reading. With reading being the cornerstone of all subsequent learning, the daily reading habit is the simplest, least expensive way to set your child up for a lifetime of success and joy.
Learners should bring something to shake (maraca, shaky egg, or anything that makes a shaky sound) and a book they love — any book in any language.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Note Regarding YouTube: I never use YouTube during class — all music in class is played live by me on the ukulele or xylophone. The YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/singrhymeandplaywithmschristina, is available for your use before and/or after class, in the event you would like to preview and/or review course content. You do not need an account to watch the videos.
Students may preview and review Ms. Christina's educational content on her YouTube channel, "Sing, Rhyme, and Play with Ms. Christina," www.youtube.com/singrhymeandplaywithmschristina.
