This class takes a look into the lives of people like Albert Einstein, Queen Elizabeth, Jackie Robinson, Michelle Obama, Maya Angelou, Alexander Hamilton, Frieda Kahlo, and Frank Lloyd Wright. This class may study the same people in the “Who Was” class but it is presented in a completely different way. In part, we will use a different set of books called, Childhood of Famous Americans Series, leveled for grades 3-7. They are high interest reading materials with a purpose.

I use PowerPoint presentations about our famous historical figures and more independent reading and research is done by the students. Eventually, the students choose someone to research and present to the class. That project involves a specific format. We immerse in the interesting lives of others.

1 hr. Fridays, 10:00am - 11:00am

Let’s Read, Learn, and Play together! In this unique mixed ages and skill leveled class, students will get twice the fun to focus on their reading skills with Miss Kirsten and Miss Julie. Whether online or in person, this class is designed to begin with mixed group time before breaking out for individual skill leveled learning. Beginner readers will work with Miss Julie using a variety of early readers, videos, and games to grow and strengthen their phonemic awareness, sight word recognition, and simple sentence and paragraph reading fluidity. Intermediate readers will work with Miss Kirsten. Her group will discuss setting, inferences, comparing and contrasting, characters, theme, cause and effects, predictions, point of view, and conflicts and resolutions. Every book will open the opportunity to do art activities and we can journal our progress. We will choose our books depending on their online availability and the composition of the class. We are prepared to work online or in the classroom. This class meets twice a week.
