Upon completion of the first semester of this class students should be more comfortable writing longer stories. They will learn things like: -how to get thoughts onto paper -elements of a story -efficiency with conventional spelling & mechanics of writing
I am a Colorado-certified teacher who has been teaching students in grades K-8 for over 20 years. I have taught in a variety of setting, including public schools, homeschool environments, as well as alternative education venues. I have been engaging students on Outschool for over 2 years.
There is no assigned homework, however, students may wish to add to their stories throughout the week. There is time for sharing at the beginning of each class.
Students will need a writing journal. At this level, students may use a primary writing journal like in the link below or a regular spiral-bound notebook or composition book. If your student has trouble forming letters or keeping them on the lines, the primary journal would be a better choice. If they write smaller and have good handwriting, you can use the spiral or composition book. Primary writing journal (available on Amazon for about $6): https://amzn.to/3yK3bCz
