Welcome to our class webpage.  Here is a little information about me. I am married with 3 children, 2 grandchildren and 1 cat! I love to read, scrapbook, make jewelry, cards and mixed media canvases. I have a BSEd in Elementary Education, a Masters Degree in Leadership and Administration and a Rank I as a Reading/Writing Specialist. I continue to enhance my education in every way possible in order to stay up to date on current teaching methods. 
I hope this webpage proves helpful in keeping you up to date on things we are doing in our class. I will be adding to the page so please keep checking back. :)
This year in class we will again be using a strategy called Whole Brain Teaching.  The students will be taught the rules, strategies, and processes used in this style.  If you would like to learn more about this style you can visit http://www.wholebrainteaching.com/ or type whole brain teaching into YouTube and there you will find videos of teachers and students using these strategies.  I have also added the link to my webpage here so you can go directly from my page to the website. Later in the year as students learn the strategies I would like to invite parents to observe in math class if they would like to see our students in action.
I will also be using KAGAN strategies that go hand in hand with my Whole Brain Teaching as it will be getting the students up and moving as well as interacting with each other about what they are learning!
You will also hear your child mentioning Leader in Me with the 7 Habits. This is a school-wide initiative we are implementing at Argillite to assist students in realizing their full potential and building life long skills to help them be successful in school as well as their personal lives. We will be sending information home for you to read and discuss with your child and ideas to implement the 7 Habits at home.
 
Math Classes

I am so excited to be your child's math teacher this year! Many parents ask, "What can we do to help our child in math?" Number 1: Help your child memorize basic multiplication facts. I teach them strategies in class to model why 4 x 8 = 32, but it helps if they don't have to struggle with basic facts. The more students struggle with basic facts the more difficulty they have with deeper understandings of math concepts. You can help them with this by just orally quizzing as your preparing dinner or while you're in the car on the way to the grocery store. It doesn't have to be paper/pencil. 
What are we studying? 
At the beginning of the school year students will be learning routines to help them be successful in Math Workshop. In Math Workshop students will be working in one of four stations, one of those stations will be in a small group with me working on the math skill we are learning at the time. Another strategy I will be implementing is a Flipped Classroom. This entails me either creating a video or posting a video of the lesson the students will be practicing with me in class. The video, if possible will be the students homework along with a few notes they will take during the video. Students who do not have access to internet at home will have an opportunity to watch the video in class the next morning. This will allow me to do more in depth work with the students in class and move at a pace appropriate for the students.  
 In Science students will begin the year with Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems.
 In Social Studies we begin with geography.
Around July 1st Back to School letters will be mailed out letting parents know who their child's homeroom teacher will be along with a supply list. This will give you the opportunity to hit those sales as soon as they come out. 
Back to School Picnic: August 13th 5:00 - 6:30
First Day of School: August 15th 
 
I am looking forward to having your child in class. 
Have a great summer!!!
