One of my favorite things about brick building is how it gets my imagination going and gives me so many story ideas! In this one-time class, we will use inspiration from our brick builds to create comic-strip style stories. Class starts with an opportunity to share a build brought to class. Then, I share a build of my own and the start of a simple comic-strip style story that goes with it. Learners will help me think of ways to add to my story and we will brainstorm ideas for their own...
The overarching goal of this class is to spark children's excitement for using their current literacy skills in playful and meaningful ways both in class and afterward at home. I believe that learning to read and write is a process that develops gradually with support, time, and authentic opportunities to use their developing skills. The way each child engages with the activities in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development (they may be drawing, writing letters, words and/or sentences). The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to inspire them to use their current skills in new ways.
I have a Master's degree in early childhood and inclusive education with an emphasis on literacy. I have been an educator for 20 years and am passionate about teaching literacy skills that support a lifelong love of reading and writing. I see all children as capable individuals who are motivated to learn when their interests are honored and they are encouraged to make their own discoveries.
Please bring a brick-build, a few pieces of paper or a notebook, and something to write or draw with (pencils, crayons or markers).
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
