Class Experience

The students will:
Practice social skills through introductions and show and tell (taking turns, speaking, listening, etc.)
Recognize letter S
Make the /s/ sound
Listen for the beginning /s/ sound 
Substitute S at the beginning of familiar words and names (ex: “Mom” becomes “Som”)
Name things beginning with S
Trace letter S in salt or sand
Make a collage of items beginning with letter S
Sing a song with many S words

Optional activities will be provided for the learners to complete at home with parents. These will be posted in the classroom.
- Printout of block letter S (The link will be posted in the classroom before class. If possible, please print it on cardstock. Otherwise, you could glue the printout to a piece of cardstock, poster board, or cardboard.) - S items for Show and Tell (Examples: toy animals, such as stegosaurus, snake, seahorse, or squirrel; objects, such as soap, a skateboard, a spoon, or a sock; foods, such as soup or sunflower seeds. Multiple items are fine!) - Wide, shallow container of salt for tracing (enough salt to cover the bottom) OR a cookie sheet covered with shaving cream - (If using shaving cream) A damp cloth or towel for wiping hands - Glue, glue stick, and tape (Allene’s tacky glue is recommended for heavier collage items) - Small items to glue/tape on collage. It’s preferable to have an assortment of items, rather than just one. Collage options: printed pictures (link provided in the classroom before class); real items, such as small toys; other pictures printed from the internet; and/or pictures cut from magazines. (Ideas: sand, sticks, stickers of things starting with “s” [snowflakes, smiley face, etc.], soup packet, silver plastic coins, drinking straws, straw, snakes, soap, fake snow, string, cooked spaghetti, stamps, stars, sequins, seeds, salt, etc.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
All songs in this class are original, written by me!
