We have a new student teacher in class, Mrs. Hicks. She will be with us everyday through Christmas. I'm sure you will hear her name at home. :)
We have NO dixie cups in the classroom- if you are interested in donating to us. Thank you!
In language Arts/ Phonics- we do a program called Wilson Fundations. This helps the kids read and write their letters, and get to know their sounds. We are focusing on letters Ll, Hh, and Kk this week. We will be working on the sight word "to" this week.
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.
In math, we finish chapter 4 on numbers 6-10, and begin chapter 5 on graphing.
In science, we will be discussing weather changes and how weather is measured (thermometers, humidity, etc).
In social studies, we are discussing The American Flag, the United States, and other American Symbols.

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.
