Class Experience

Students will learn seven decoding strategies to use while reading unfamiliar words.
Beginning readers need a variety of strategies to decode unfamiliar words. Simply "sounding it out" will not work for many English words. I have used these strategies with many elementary age students who are learning how to read fluently.
Students will teach their parents the new strategy. Then the students will practice each strategy daily while reading a book on their reading level.
Each reading strategy will have a corresponding poster and a bookmark with all of the strategies will be provided. Students will need books on their reading level to practice with during class and throughout the week. Please contact me if you need help choosing or finding books on your child's reading level.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
