Can Gerald the join the jungle Dance? Skills covered include, listening, speaking, connecting to a story, sharing thoughts and putting them into a spoken and then written sentence. Learners will listen to a story, discuss ideas for a written response and then work together to write a sentence or two based on the story.

Students will improve their ability to write a simple sentence on a topic of their choice and correctly spell age-appropriate sight words. This course does not focus on spelling, but builds confidence in getting ideas on paper.

No homework required, but learners are encouraged to practice writing on their own.
Writing template will be provided, but regular paper if fine. Learners will need something to write with.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
