There are many ways in which we use reading and writing in our everyday lives and one of these is when we are at a restaurant reading a menu. Many children include pretend cooking in their imaginary play, so why not find ways to bring literacy into the fun? In this one-time class, we will start by looking at some examples of menus, noticing what words, numbers, and other information menus include. Then, we will start creating our own imaginary menus, brainstorming the types of food we would...
The overarching goal of this class is to spark children's excitement for using their current literacy skills in playful and meaningful ways both in class and afterward at home. I believe that learning to read and write is a process that develops gradually with support, time, and authentic opportunities to use their developing skills. The way each child engages with the activities in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development (they may be drawing, writing letters and/or words, recognizing symbols, letters and/or words). The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to inspire them to use their current skills in new ways.
I have a Master's degree 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.
Please bring paper and something to draw/write with (any of the following: pencils, crayons, markers).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
