First, let me say that I love The Who Would Win Series. It is a challenging reader that excites us with its beautiful graphics, battles, and extended learning opportunities. This class takes the book to another level of learning by pausing to look at the vocabulary and understand the content on a deeper level. Many excited readers love these books but quickly read over the vocabulary, tips, and facts to get to the end of the battle. We read the battle but rewind to look at the advantages and...
Students will be given vocabulary challenges to dig more into the words. They will expand their knowledge of vocabulary through origin, pronunciation, definition, prefixes, suffixes, context, synonyms, and antonyms. Strengthen their vocabulary will enhance their skills in writing, comprehension, and spelling.
I have used these book as extended learning/ESL extended activities for three years. I love these books!! I read along with the children with the same enthusiasm with each battle. It is a joy to teach, read and journey with my students. I read at a very early age and remember the joy of a new book or an escape in time. I still read and listen to multiple books and participate in book clubs myself. I share book titles and suggestions with my friends. I hope to ignite this lifelong hobby to your child. With an ESL background, I find non-fiction reading and vocabulary studies to improve students' overall skills. Science reading adds a fun element to reading while enhancing their English skills. On a side note, my husband has a zoology degree and over thirty years experience in this field. He is my go to animal adviser to help me gain some extra animal knowledge to pass along.
Videos and worksheets will be posted in the classroom each week. Students will be able to watch them and respond to discussion questions posted in the classroom. Optional field trips and videos via Approved Embedded YouTube links will be posted as well. Discussion questions will be posted on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Students will progress in their reading comprehension skills and increased vocabulary knowledge. Individual reading sessions can be scheduled if requested to work on reading, pronunciation, and/or intonation.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the battles in these books will be fatal to a particular animal. Readers need to be mature enough to understand the animal battles and outcomes. The graphics in the book are excellent but are sometimes photoshopped as these animals may never actually meet in real life. I suggest that any parent that is new to this series read the book first before registering for the class. YouTube videos will occasionally be embedded in the Outschool classroom if they provide enhanced learning opportunities.
I create my own slides/videos/course content using source materials and research using a variety of sources. These presentations will be a screen share of my Google Slide/PowerPoint presentations. Students will not be asked to visit these sites nor will we share screen to these source materials. These are sites that provide source material for my presentations.
