Class Experience

The students will select an imaginative writing prompt to respond to.  The students will use a combination of drawing and writing to tell about a topic.  The students will respond to questions from their peers when sharing their writing.
I have 6 years of experience as a classroom special education teacher, five years of experience as a homeschool mom, and 20 years of experience as a tutor.  I am combining some of my favorite strategies here to create a fun and effective writing program for your learners!
Students will be encouraged to continue working on their projects throughout the week (about 10-15 minutes) and post a picture in the classroom.  Students will also be encouraged to do "research" on their writing topic by selecting multiple books to be read on the topic.
The students should have their own writer's journal to start class with! This could be a notebook or paper put into a binder. Students will be encouraged to draw pictures and write words so keep this in mind when selecting what paper to include/select. Students should bring materials to write & draw with, using crayons/colored pencils or any type of pencil is fine. Pick what is best for your learner and please message me if you have questions. Please do not use markers or anything that will bleed through the pages.
By creating a writer's journal and adding to it through the year you will have an entire portfolio of work samples to watch your child grow!  If you would like a more formal assessment, I can send you a writing prompt to have your child complete individually and confirm if this is the level class they should be in or what mini-lessons should be planned for future classes.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
