The cafeteria wanted us to send a reminder about keeping money on your child's lunch account. I guess alot of kids have been short lately.
During the next two weeks, we will be learning about dinosaurs.
Please send in your child's white T-shirt this week for dino day.
I got some donations, but we could still use disinfecting wipes, dixie cups, and extra snacks. If you are interested in donating to the classroom...
This week in Reading and phonics (Fundations)- we have been working on decoding silent E and double vowel words. We continue our study of glued sounds and also do daily comprehension activities. All students are expected to write 4 sentences a day in their journals. YAY!! Our new sight words are "come" and "nine."
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, here, four, was, five, he, she, six, with, my, seven, where, eight, me, come, nine.
In math, we continue our enrichment booklets which challenge the kids on all math topics we've discussed this year. It focuses on the topics that were hardest for the kids this year: money, time, place value, and symmetry, etc.
In Science, we will be discussing dinosaurs and other animals from the past.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND A SNACK EVERYDAY FOR YOUR CHILD- EVEN IF THEY ARE BUYING THEIR LUNCH.
A REMINDER TO PLEASE SEND ALL NOTES OR MONEY- INCLUDING LUNCH MONEY- IN A LABELED ENVELOPE OR BAGGIE. PLEASE PLACE IT INSIDE THE ZIPPER POUCH IN YOUR CHILD'S CAMP BOOK.

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 13 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.
