Description

Class Experience

The learning goal for this class is that students will learn, understand, and remember the majority of the 150 words they will be learning so that they will be more successful in their understanding of written/oral text and conversationally. That understanding also gives them a bigger vocabulary base as they go on to write their own stories, and study academic content at higher levels, as well.  
I'm a certified K-8th teacher with decades of experience teaching children, most often in K-3rd grades. I have subbed all grades, though, from Preschool-12th grade and have regularly taught ages 3-18, online, for over 4 1/2 years now, in multiple subjects. I was also a director of a daycare center before going back to school to do a Master's in Teaching Program (Summa Cum Laude). I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration: Accounting.......and I even went to law school! Teaching is my passion, though!
There is a definite correlation between student success and practicing what they learn at home. It would be great if parents could incorporate their new vocabulary words into conversation throughout the weeks to help cement those words into their permanent vocabulary knowledge. As for specific homework, it is very minimal. There is an activity sent home once weekly with a passage parents can read to their children......or children can read to their parents, if they're able to, with some suggestions on it, coloring, etc....which reinforces the words they've learned. 
Supplies needed: scissors, glue/paste, crayons, and Wordly Wise 3000 Book K, 4th Edition. Amazon sells a 2 pack of student books for Books K and 1 so, if you think your child will be continuing into Book 1, you might want to get them at the same time.
As a teacher in the classroom previously and having taught over 25,000 classes online now, I am used to continually "informally assessing" students as we go along, and providing additional help and clarification when needed. A lot of this assessment is done when asking questions before and after the story, or when going over the vocabulary. There is a more formal assessment sheet as we go along that I may also fill out. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
