I am so excited to start another week of school with my incredible little friends! Take a look at some of the fun ways we have been learning at Salina!
Last week I introduced letters Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, and Ee! We also began writing in our notebooks as we practiced following the expectations of writing time! We also got to “read” with our books in our work boxes! The children even went “book shopping”! We have been practicing fluency with counting to five “the math way”…. (pinky first to represent a number line). We also learned about the importance of rules and talked about our country’s Constitution! We made our own classroom constitution that has three main rules! Be KIND, Be SAFE, and Be RESPONSIBLE! We have been practicing what good listeners do and sound like when we are listening to a story being read aloud!
In addition, to all of this learning, we have been learning that school is FUN and SAFE! Families, I adore your children already! I am so blessed to your child’s teacher! PLEASE feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns! We are a family together working for your child’s best!
Take a look at the pictures below of some of the super awesome things we have been doing!
We have been learning how to form letters! We are using play dough to form the letter Ee.

We are off to such a wonderful start to the 2021-22 school year! I am so blessed and excited to be your child’s teacher! We will be learning kindergarten academic concepts such as letters/sounds, sight words, reading and writing, math, and much, much more! In addition to these important concepts, we will be learning about how to manage our emotions and get along with our new friends. We will play, laugh, learn….but most importantly, we will love! We will love Salina School, our friends, our teachers, and especially learning! Salina is such an amazing place for your child to feel truly valued and safe as they begin their elementary school journey!

We had an awesome and very warm week 38! Together, we made each school day super fun!
Please remember our Young 5s Celebration picnic is for all of the families too!!!! Please be sure to bring a big blanket for you and your family to socially distance and sit on. The children will be presenting their writing as well as singing a song in sign language! PLEASE be sure to join us or send a family member in your place! My students have been paid for. Please do not send in the $5.00 for them 🙂
The picnic is on Thursday June 17th on the small Oakman School playground at 1:00-2:15.
Look at the fun we have been having!!!
Thank you for all you do! Dads, I hope you all enjoy the portraits your children made for you as well as the acrostic poems about DAD!
The children and I have enjoyed an amazing week 35 of Young 5s! They also took their Spring NWEA Reading and Math tests! If your child missed either test, please do not worry. They will take it this week.
Take a look at the super terrific things we did last week!!
I hope you all have a lovely week! Thank you for all you do!
I hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend and a beautiful Mother’s Day! The children worked so hard on your surprises at school!
Take a look at some of the awesome things we did on our marvelous Monday!
Today begins the ABC Countdown to the last day of school! Both groups did something for the letter A! Group B drew their favorite animal and shared! Group A did a Nearpod for the letter Aa! We wrote the letter Aa, drew what begins with letter Aa and were artists when we made our windsocks! Tomorrow we will have letter Bb day!!!
We had such a wonderful day together! We had picture day at Oakman School for you Group A! Tomorrow will be picture day for Group B! Please remember to send your child’s picture form completed with the exact payment for your order. If you do not want to order pictures, it is no problem at all. However, your child will still be getting their picture taken.
Of course we started our day off with sharing what we are thankful for! The students had such sweet responses. Many replied that they are thankful for one of the classmates in the room and mentioned them by name! I love that they are building friendships and know you do too! I am thankful for these connections!
Take a look at a few of the super things we did today!
