Summer Camp Classes

Looking for a learning adventure during the summer break? Click on the Summer Camp classes below for descriptions of the fun we’ll have together! 

Join me to learn about 10 creepy creatures from Elisa Gravel’s fun book series “Disgusting Critters.” We will read about the bat, the spider, the worm, the rat, the slug, the toad, the fly, the mosquito, the cockroach, and head lice! In each class we will also play an interactive game to review facts about each animal and do a directed-drawing to remember each disgusting critter. These classes are perfect for Kindergarten through 3rd grade. 10 classes total.

In these classes, we will have fun learning about different parts of grammar. We will begin each class by reviewing a particular grammar topic. Then we will read a story, play an interactive game, and complete a fun craft, all focusing on our topic. The topics for these classes include nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, contractions, compound words, interjections, suffixes, prefixes, prepositions, synonyms, antonyms, pronouns, conjunctions, punctuation, homophones, homographs, homonyms, capitalization, shades of meaning, and run on sentences. I would email parents the printables of the crafts before each class so students would be able to print them out.  These classes are perfect for Kindergarten through 3rd grade. 30 classes total.

These reading lessons have a main text, a shorter companion text, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and writing. I would teach these reading lessons for students in 1st through 3rd grade.

Hello! I’m Teacher Shannon IZ. I have been a teacher for 26 years! I have taught 2nd grade, bother regular and gifted classes. I have also taught as a substitute teacher in Early Childhood classrooms through 5th grade. I have a master’s degree in Elementary Education with a focus on Reading. I earned both the TESOL Foundational Certification and the Advanced Certification. I love teaching children, and I am so excited to team up with Blue Sky Education LLC. I teach ESOL classes as well as specialty classes, which include Grammar Tales and a series called Disgusting Critters.

Here’s a little about me: I live in Wildwood, Missouri, with my husband, my son Jacob, and our three fish. For fun, I love to spend time with family, take walks, listen to music, read, and spend time outdoors. I hope to see you in the classroom soon!

"Teacher Shannon IZ is a GEM!!! She deserves a zillion stars! Before the class I told my 5 yr old that he was having another class with Teacher Shannon IZ and his reply was "I like her." She keeps the children engaged the entire time. No child is ever left out. She has a wonderful and pleasant personality that makes all the children feel welcome and comfortable. My son loves her classes and he's signing up for the rest of her classes. I really cannot say enough about her. She is wonderful. I highly recommend all of her classes!"
