Beautiful Friday!

Sunday, September 10, 2017

What a perfect way to celebrate a beautiful Friday!


Today, Mrs. Sanders and I swapped classes so that I could teach her students technology with our new laptops. Our brand new HP laptops, with Windows 10, are amazing, but definitely are different when it comes to logging in. So while I was helping her class, she had my class participate in a germs experiment that involved water and black pepper. The class loved it!

Close reading

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

We began Close Reading today.   I used Oreo cookies to introduce the readings in a fun way to get students to look at details.  Students worked with their elbow partner, after the first read, to answer the "gist" of the article.  Tomorrow is the second reading where we will "dig deeper" for understanding!

First week 2017

We did it! We managed to get the whole class logged on to our new HP laptops with Windows 10.  That doesn't sound so bad, except we had to restart,  restart again, and restart again! 😀  I'm so proud of my kiddos for persevering and helping each other.   ❤

2017-2018 Classroom Reveal

Thursday, August 17, 2017

I am so excited to get this school year started!  I've completed my classroom and ready for the kiddos to come enjoy learning.  In a little over a week, they will be here and I absolutely cannot wait.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.  I did not change much from last year's room.  I made changes towards the end of last school year.  The kiddos liked it so much, that I decided to keep it all the same.  Enjoy!

Eagles Fun Run

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Last week I sent home information on the Eagles Fun Run and added the information to the classroom Facebook page.  I am attaching it here, as well.  I will also email the information out again!  Parents, we hope to see you all on Friday, enjoying the day with your child.  It's a lot of fun!

End of Year Assessments

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Good Morning, we will begin our end-of-year district assessments this week. Today-Friday students are taking their District Reading Benchmark Test and then next Tuesday-Thursday they will take their District CCRSM Math Assessment. We will start each assessment at 9:45 and finish by 10:45. It is important for students to be present for all testing days, to maintain their normal testing environment and routine. This will alleviate stress caused by testing in an alternate make-up location, with another teacher.

Purple Up!

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Purple Up! Today was our last Purple Up day for Month of the Military Child 2017. These kiddos are so special and unique. I love everything they represent and having the privilege of being a part of their lives. Military children are extremely resilient and strong. I am so blessed to be a mother and teacher of these amazing kiddos!
