Young Learners Reading Adventures
Teacher: Yeanelle Thome
NO MATERIAL FEES!
Spring: 10 weeks: $287 or $277 if taking 2 or more classes
The reading class will focus on developing early reading, writing, spelling, and phonics skills using Logic of English, Foundations A. We will establish a solid foundation for reading with extensive multi-sensory phonemic awareness activities. Students will learn to read and write lowercase letters a-z and practice decoding short vowel words and consonant blends through multi-sensory games and activities. Young learners will read and comprehend phrases with lowercase letters and short vowels. Reading instruction is individualized to the learner through small groups and activities in the class. Each student will receive a Logic of English, Foundations A workbook to use in class.
Some of the skills we will cover include:
Blending and segmenting words auditorily (with no printed words)
Identifying the initial and final sound in a word and match it to the correct single-letter phonogram
Reading all the sounds for A-Z
Writing the lowercase alphabet
Reading consonant-vowel-consonant words
Decoding 80+ high-frequency words with some fluency, and have the tools to decode hundreds more
Spelling short vowel words
Reading short vowel words with consonant blends
Reading and comprehending phrases with lowercase letters and short vowels
The spring session will include 3 readers that students will make from their workbooks. We will continue with CVC spelling words and introduce blends this trimester. Some of the interactive games and activities scheduled are spelling word swat, word run, dragon game, rotten egg game, charades, differentiated word locks, stamping activities, bowling for high frequency words, spelling word ice fishing, and more!
In addition, we will target reading comprehension as well as vocabulary through numerous award-winning books to engage young learners in reading, questioning, and talking about fiction and poetry.
