The next two weeks, our class we be focusing on staying healthy: eating healthy foods, staying clean, fighting germs, exercising, getting enough sleep, eye health, and dental health. We have a special eye professional coming Tuesday to deliver a eye program for all the K kids. :)
Thank you to those who have recently donated hand soap, dixie cups, disinfecting wipes and extra snacks. We can always use those things.
This week in Reading and phonics (Fundations)- we will continue focusing on the skills of blending and comprehension. We will also continue building small consonant- vowel-consonant (CVC) words and sentences. We have also begun discussing digraphs (ch, th, sh, wh, ck). We will also be reviewing handwriting. The kids struggled with correct formation on their mid- year tests. I will continue testing the kids on their ability to read 25 CVC words. Our new sight words are "said" and "three."
These are the sight words we have done so far in class: red, I, can, purple, we, yellow, the, brown, like, a, black, orange, go, green, blue, see, pink, gray, white, to, have, is, play, are, for, you, this, and, do, what, one, little, two, said, three
In math, we begin chapter 11 on addition.
In Science, we will be talking about the properties of sinking and floating and magnetism. Lots of fun, hands-on experiments to do!

Welcome to my home page. :) Since I will be spending the day with your children, here's a little bit about me. I grew up in Green with my wonderful parents and 2 brothers, and I graduated from Green in 1996. I graduated from UA with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 2001 and my master's degree in teaching in 2006. I have also taken additional credits in technology and our Leader In Me initiative. I have been teaching for 17 years and I love it! I have been teaching kindergarten here at Nolley for 12 years. I taught Title One for 4 years here at Nolley, and I taught first grade one year in the Jackson Local Schools. My favorite thing about teaching little ones is watching their reading and writing skills emerge so quickly. I tell some people that it is almost like witnessing a miracle. Their love for learning is priceless and precious and I love being able to foster that.
I have two amazing sons. Dominic is 12 and Angelo is 9. They both attend Manchester Schools. When I am not teaching or being a mommy, I enjoy reading, exercising, and being with family and friends.
The Manchester community is wonderful and I feel blessed to teach at Nolley and serve its children.
