An inspiring class to get your child thinking about language more deeply. Multi-level and ability, with multi-year content. Many students attend for 3-4 years. Priority is given to existing students. New students welcome, space permitting. Truly friendly to those not reading yet. Students engage with dynamic content including: self-paced Italic handwriting workbook; practical English grammar from discussion of great children’s literature read aloud; copywork and/or dictation from the literature for supported self-correction in class; narration as a comprehension tool; Latin & Greek roots as a game; and memory work using famous poetry. We always have room for questions, and have a few projects involving the history of language and of written language as art. There will be room for social interaction. We always start with a check-in circle. Each child has a chance to share. The class has a comforting structure, and plenty of variety to keep it snappy. We wrap with some chat time for the kids to connect with each other. Language is a social tool, so we practice it by being social. Basic school art supplies will be needed: an unlined (art/sketch) notebook or pad, pencils, colored pencils, erasers. A list of special materials to be purchased by families will be shared upon registration. ~ $25 for workbook, correct handwriting pens, shipping. The workbook and pen typically last the whole school year. PLEASE NOTE CAMPUS CLASSES HAVE A CAP OF 10 STUDENTS.
