Open House Sunday, Aug 18th from 4 - 7p

Homeschool class for Intermediate Readers


This class includes group work in the areas of grammar, composition, math, and science.

In our 2018 -19 year, this group worked on literacy skills by:

  • creating personal dictionaries.

  • self-publishing an original piece of writing (from a few words each page to a few sentences).

  • playing with homemade Story Dice and Word Cubes.

  • optional participation in supportive group read-alouds.

  • playing Word Wreck, a game where vowels and consonants are replaced in order to create different and imaginary words. 

  • incorporating illustration by visualizing simple, imaginary words that we created.

  • playing charades with sight words.

  • creating mini-skits in Verb, Noun and Adjactive teams.

    As emerging mathmaticians, our students this age worked on the basic foundations of adding, subtracting, regrouping, and began to tackle the concepts of multiplication and fractions by:

  • the use of manipulatives such as rods, bundles of toothpicks, marbles.

  • solving Ken Ken and other puzzles.

  • creating skip counting charts.

  • ad lib-ing silly word problems.

  • creating a masking-tape number line on the floor to allow for lots of movement while solving problems.

Fall 2019 plans include:

  • Parts of speech

  • Capitalization and punctuation

  • Early composition

  • Literature comprehension

  • Interest-based science units

  • Strengthening knowledge of the four operations
