Welcome to TK

With each new year I get filled with excitement and anticipation. This year I have moved into a classroom which I love , but am still trying to figure out where everything will work best. I can't wait to meet all of my new faces and I know we are going to have a great year together. I am looking forward to seeing all of my  new students on Tuesday, August 15 for Back to School Night. The classroom will be open from 5 to 6:30 for you and your child to come and meet me and take a look around our room. On the first day of school I will be meeting all of the students in the cafeteria between 7:40 and 7:55. Don't for get for TK and Kinder students the first 2 days of school will be minimum days and they will be released to you at noon. There will not be a bus offered to them during the first 2 days of school so please make arrangements.

New Year Approaching

I always get excited as each new year approaches. It is a chance to revamp my classroom, try new things and meet new students. Of course I am lucky enough to already know most of my students since I get to loop with them. I have loved the experience of looping because I know where most of my students are at the beginning of the second year which allows me to get leveled groups up and running right at the beginning of the year. I know this year is going to be a " Super" year! Watch for upcoming updates and I am looking forward to seeing all of my students on Monday, August 15 for Back to School Night.

Conference Week

This week is going to fly by and the schedule is crazy. School gets out on Monday at 1:30 and  Tuesday at 2:30. Then students are released at 12:00 the rest of the week to allow teachers and parents to meet and discuss individualized learning goals for all students.

In class we will be focusing on the letters 'Ii" and "Tt." We will also be reviewing our HFW's and focusing on "the." During math, we are still working on numbers 1-10 primarily with a focus on representing them using tally marks. We will continue to have fun as we read and learn about penguins.

The Week Before Thanksgiving

This last week I am sure will fly by. We have 2 different hats to make a turkey and a native american head dress. We will also be squeezing in a  few other themed crafts. We will conclude our week with a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. The students will enjoy the same treats as the Peanut Gang while they watch the movie. The student surprise this week will be that on Friday we are planning a comfy P.J. day. This is always one of our favorite type dress up days. the homework section the word "can" accidently appears twice. One of them should be "the."
