About Me

My photo
I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in June 2009. I began my wonderful career teaching first grade shortly thereafter, in August 2009. In June 2016, I completed my Masters with the focus in Reading grades K-6th grade. This will be my seventh year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Monkey Madness

As I think about the fun-filled week we had, I've come to the conclusion that I didn't get out my camera nearly enough this past week.  Hopefully, your child came home with the exciting news that our class had the highest percentage of addresses turned in and WE WON THE MONKEY!  We'll work on naming him and deciding how to incorporate him in our classroom throughout this upcoming week.  Here are some photos from our week:

You'll need to come to Science Night, Tuesday, to find out more about it!

Our Hearts

We sure know how to cram in as much learning as possible in yet again another short week!  We started off the week learning about how to keep our hearts healthy, we then celebrated our 100th day of school, and ended it with a fabulous Valentine's Day party!  Here are some photos from our week:
Healthy Heart
 We used a 'stethoscope' to listen to our hearts.
Then, we did some running in place.
Next, we listened to our hearts again.
Last, we discussed the differences we heard and why.

Valentine's Day Party
Thank you to all who donated for the party.
Thank you to all who volunteered!
Lots of fun was had by all!

Healthy Teeth

Even though we had yet another unscheduled day off, we had a great week learning about ways to have healthy teeth!  Here are a few photos from our week:
Ways to Make 10
Not too hard to see which beverage is the healthiest for our teeth!
Dentist Visit!
 How lucky are we to have a student whose mom is a dentist?
We sure did learn a lot!
