Class Experience

The overarching goal of the class is to help learners dig deeper into their curiosity about nature and to get excited about putting their ideas down on paper.  This class is designed for children with a range of literacy skills and I think it is important to celebrate all stages of literacy development.  The way each child adds to their nature journal in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development. The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to encourage them to try out new ideas.  
I have a Master's in early childhood and inclusive education with an emphasis on literacy.  I have been an educator for 20 years and am passionate about teaching literacy skills that support a lifelong love of reading and writing.  I see all children as capable individuals who are motivated to learn when their interests are honored and they are encouraged to make their own discoveries.  I also love spending time outdoors with my own family and have enjoyed journaling since I was a child.  I have seen that spending time in nature sparks so much curiosity and opportunities for learning and I love being alongside them as they make and share discoveries.
An artifact found in nature or a nature related idea/discovery/experience to share in class. A simple journal (this can be a bound journal, or blank paper stapled together / paper to add to a 3 ring binder). Something to write/draw with (pencil, crayons, markers...)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
