My mission is to provide a positive learning community for both my students and myself every day in every way. I believe each of my students is an individual and has a right to have their needs met academically, socially and emotionally, to the best of my ability. In this class we are proud to do our best every day and in every way!

Some Great Sites to Help You Help Your Students

I wanted to share some great sites with you  - I will be sharing how you might use them with your children during our conferences later in the week. 

This first site is great for you to find books that are just right for your child. Put the title of a book in the Wizard to find that book and more by that author. Put the title of a text you know your child enjoys into the Book Alike box and slide the reading level slide to harder or easier or leave in the middle for text that is just right...

Scholastic Book Wizard & Book Alike Site

This next site is great if your child needs handwriting practice, reversal correction practice, & number writing practice. This is also great to help your child practice writing their first and last names independently.

"The Peacemakers" - PTO Sponsored Assembly

Thanks to the PTO for sponsoring another wonderful assembly for our school. This was a real winner! Our students felt they were a part of the performance and it made us all think about how important it is to open our minds and hearts to everyone!
