Writing and Grammar Game Show

In this ongoing class, students will increase their grammar knowledge and writing skills through activities and games. The old saying, "If you don't use it, you will lose it," is also true for grammar and writing skills.

My son and I joined Outschool in September of 2019. We also started homeschooling at the same time. I enjoy being a parent and a teacher with Outschool. I receive valuable insight due to my two roles. 

Extra:
-I love learning. I love learning about writing, science, literature, arts, history, and many more topics. 
-I have done a lot of research, took classes, and in many cases received certification for the following:
social skills, happiness, mindfulness, crisis intervention, mental illness, disabilities, self-esteem for elementary and middle schoolers
-I have lead many clubs and classes in these areas too. I also have extensive knowledge of the impact of stress, mental illness, chronic illness, and environmental circumstances on a person's learning.
-Soccer Player and Coach: eons 
-I love working with children, tweens, and teens.
No homework
Contestants can choose their writing methods. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will infrequently use YouTube through the Outschool platform so no other ads or videos are shown. Students will not enter YouTube themselves. We will play Gimkit games. Students do not need an account to play. I will have a secret code to enter on the website to get into our personal game. Canva, Google Drive, and Scratch are optional for students to use to present their ideas. It is not necessary for students to utilize these resources. Canva, Google Drive, and Scratch all have free versions that require an account. Students can simply write in the chat box or write on paper instead of using those 3 resources. Finally, I will use Baamboozled as a way to present material. Students will not enter the website. I will share my screen and will be the only one that has access to clicking the game show questions.

About Me

"I don't know what to write about. Why do I have to edit my paper? I don't like writing." Have you heard similar statements in your home? I heard these statements so much that I decided to do something about it. I studied various ways to teach...
