Students are working to identify letters, as well as, recognizing main ideas of stories and gain understanding of nouns.
- Write numbers from 0 to 20
- Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinalitye
- Count to answer how many
- Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way
- Classify objects into given categories; count the number of objects in each category
Students are reviewing letter sounds and working to identify beginning and ending sounds in a given word.
- Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving putting together and taking apart
- Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract
- Relate counting to addition and subtraction (by counting on 2 to add 2)
- Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10
- Understand the meaning of the equal sign and determine if equations involving addition and sutraction are true or false
Students are reviewing concepts, such as identifying beginning and ending sounds, vowel sounds, and blends and digraphs.
- Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one and two step work problems
- Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies
- Fluently add and subtract within 100 using previously learned strategies
- For any number 1 to 9 find the needed number to make 10
- Relate counting to addition and subtraction
- Understand that the two digits of a given number represent amounts of tens and ones
- Add within 100 using concrete models or drawings and previously learned strategies
Students are working to write longer, fluid sentences. They are using context clues to make inferences and draw their own conclusions when reading.
- Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares
- Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities
- Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole number
- Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide
We always say that we work in the most beautiful place and it’s confirmed every morning when I drive into town. I don’t think anyone could ask for a better view from their classroom windows!
I graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and an additional endorsement in reading. I have since received a Master’s Degree in Education, with a focus reading and literacy. I came to work in Index in January of 2006. I began teaching preschool and kindergarten in the mornings and various subjects to the second through eighth grades in the afternoons, after two years I added first grade to the class as well. With more recent changes I am now teaching Kindergarten through Third Grade.
