How Outschool Works

Using a research-based literacy program with a systematic, brain empowering scope and sequence (SIPPS Challenge Level - Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words ), learners will acquire the strategies and skills that create proficient readers and spellers no matter how long the word is! This approach is systematic and teacher-directed, with routines for modeling, practice, and correction for various kinds of errors. The core program includes 5 instructional...
Students will learn and progress in the following foundational reading and writing skills: *six syllable types (open syllables, closed syllables, syllables with final e, syllables with vowel pairs, r-controlled syllables, and consonant-l-e syllables) *syllabic generalizations (vowel-consonant-consonant-vowel) patterns *morphological units, including common prefixes, roots, and suffixes
It's exciting for me to teach 3 types of classes to K- 4 students on Outschool (reading, science, and math) because I love teaching each of these subjects so much! I am a certified reading specialist with a Masters Degree in reading, and have taught in a variety of capacities in public schools. These include kindergarten, first grade, second grade, college reading courses at Chapman University, many years as a School Reading Specialist, and mentor teacher for my former school district. I am now retired, but I just couldn't stop teaching. Every time I saw that school bus heading down the street, my heart would flutter. So I took my teaching online when I discovered Outschool! One of my unique passions is teaching children about how their amazing brain works. Because of my huge curiosity, fascination and a great deal of self study, I am able to answer common questions kids have about their brain in a fun and interactive way that makes sense to them. Each Brain Warrior class is designed to help children understand the science of their brain and the things they can do to make their brain stronger. Because we actually have more control over our brain than we think! And finally, I have recently discovered how much I LOVE writing and creating children's stories using graphic design elements. Having read so many wonderful children's stories aloud in my classroom for 34 years it was finally time to create my own! The stories I have written all have an "escape" element to them. And combining my stories with math strategies and exercise . . . the Brain Warriors Escape classes were born! I hope to see your learner in one of my classes soon!
Learner will be encouraged to read outside of class and when time permits.
*Copies of pdf materials will be posted in the classroom at their point of need - you will need to print a couple of sheets of reference material for your learner at some point. *a white board and marker/erasers or paper and pencil
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment is embedded. I will keep you informed of progress and needs.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.

The quick version of my background is that I’m a retired first grade teacher and reading specialist (after 34 years!), as well as a certified yoga instructor living in Southern California with my husband and adorable “teacher's pet” Buddy. But,...
