Technical Difficulties

Good Afternoon,

I've been having a very difficult time with the blog lately. Some days it works, others not so much. If you have not already done so, please check out our classroom Facebook page. It has been a much easier and faster way to communicate. If you have any questions, please let me know. 

Thanks

Facebook Page

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

After talking to some parents, I have decided to make a Facebook page for the classroom. J

A Facebook page is a little more user friendly since most parents already have a Facebook account. You can set up notifications to receive messages directly to your phones. The page is under my name and is private so no one else will be able to see it.

If you get a friend request, please accept it so you can like, comment, and interact on our page.


Thank you

Baby Pictures

In science, we have been learning about genetics, inherited traits and punnett squares. We are going to be doing an activity that looks at each students’ traits and find out which ones are recessive or dominant. Please send in a baby picture to aid in the activity. You can send the picture via email or text message if you prefer and I can print it out at school. I look forward to seeing how adorable your children were when they were little J

Please send them in by Tuesday, October 10, 2017.
Thank you

Great First Week

The first week of school was a huge success. The students were excited to get back to school and enjoyed being here. I am so proud of how they jumped right back into the swing of things. They did all of their work and were expected all week. I cannot wait to see the continued growth of each and every one of them. J

Seesaw App


Good Afternoon,

Today I sent home a paper with information regarding an 
app called Seesaw.

Seesaw is an app that empowers students to independently document their learning with built-in creative tools, and provides an authentic audience for their work. Seesaw gives families an immediate and personalized window into their child’s school day, and makes communication with teachers seamless. We will be posting our work and activities on the app to show our work and our growth. This interactive tool is a great way to communicate with your child and tell them how proud you are of their work. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. It went by fast but I am glad to be back in school with your wonderful children. Today, we had a wonderful first day back. The students had a great transition back into the classroom.

This week there will be no homework. Homework will be starting next week. We will be reading high-interest books with chapter questions. The students will be split into 2 groups and read different books. The homework chapters will be posted on the blog weekly.

There have been many new changes in the classroom to increase student independence and responsibility. As the students mature, the classroom will continue to change to meet their needs.

Loki is back and the students couldn’t be more excited to see her. They missed her very much. She has been very active today and is loving all of the student attention.

We are continuing utilizing independent level systems.  The daily level system where the student can earn choice time at the end of each day and goal at the end of each week. This is highly motivating to the students and helps with their behavior and completing work throughout the day. Students are also on a two-strike system where if they exhibits behaviors such as inappropriate language, mean words, refusing to work, not following teacher directions, etc, then they would lose a strike. If they loses two strikes then they would not earn for that particular activity.

Fridays will be goal day. This week we are doing a party. It is my birthday and the students want to celebrate with fun and food. It will be a great way to start the New Year. J

Thank you so much for sending in the classroom supplies. I have written the students’ names on their supplies and they are available for their use.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year.


Thank you

We had a wonderful time at the Captains Game yesterday. 


A student in our classroom was able to say "Play Ball!" in-front of the entire stadium. It was so exciting J
