I hope you all got some excellent feedback about your child's progress via their progress report. Please send back the envelope signed. :)
We are now completely out of extra snacks if you are interested in donating to us. Thank you! We are almost out of disinfecting wipes too. Thank you to those who consistently donate. There are never too many snacks!!!
In language Arts/ Phonics, we have moved onto sounding out (tapping out) small CVC (Consonant-vowel-consonant) words. We learned two new digraphs too: sh and ck. Our new sight word is "this." We will continue reviewing all letters/sounds/sight words daily. We begin number words soon.
These are the sight words we have done so far in class and the kids will be responsible to read on their own if asked in the future: red, I, can, purple, we, brown, yellow, the, like, green, black, a, orange, blue, see, gray, go, white, pink,to, have, is, play, are, you, for, this.
In math, we finished chapter 8 on money. (The kids need to be able to identify the 4 coins and know how much they are worth.) This is a tough one!!! We begin chapter 9 on measurement.
In social studies, we are studying kindness, calmness, acceptance, and tolerance in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL ALL MONEY THAT COMES TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME AND WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR.
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 18 years and I love it! I have been teaching kindergarten here at Nolley for 13 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 10. 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.
