What could possibly be better than a warm buttered toast and spending time with your favorite people? Reading about a pig whole loves these things, of course! But what happens when buttered toast isn't enough and our lovable pig-next-door, Mercy Watson, begins to crave the neighbor's sugar cookies? Join me on this two-week adventure and let's find out together. Here's what our time together will look like: Week 1: Day 1 * (mins 1-5) Introduction to class and the story. Explain guided...

I am a certified TESOL/TEFL/EYL teacher, professional writer, beta reader, proofreader, editor, and homeschool mom. I have a love for the English language (I have the BA in English to prove it), the smell of new books, and transferring ideas from mind to paper. My goal is to promote a love of learning while offering a safe and fun environment. I truly have a passion for reading and writing and would love to share my knowledge and experience with your children. As a lifelong learner, I too am always striving for growth. After years of using the IEW curriculum, I decided I wanted to share what I had learned with others and became a registered instructor with IEW. (Link for verification: https://iew.com/events-classes/instructors/find-accredited-instructor/330449) I have also been a tutor (teacher) for a local classical co-op, studied through literature seminars, and attended practicums to enhance my own reading and writing knowledge.
Students will need to read one chapter between each class in order to finish the book in two weeks. (Please see the Parental Guidance for additional information.)

Student comprehension will be an informal assessment during our reading time together. I will let you know after class how your child did reading aloud and what areas s/he may need help with. At the beginning of classes two, three, and four I will ask questions to make sure that all students comprehend the chapter that was read outside of class.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need to read one chapter between each class in order to finish the book in two weeks. It is okay for you to read to your child between classes or let them listen to the audiobook as needed. However, as we are working on their reading skills and comprehension it is highly suggested that you allow them to read to you as often as possible.
