This is my 14th year teaching, and my Fourth year at Timber Creek. I am a graduate of the University of Houston with specializations in early childhood and reading. My husband and I were blessed with two precious boys. Will is starting 5th grade and Hudson is starting 3rd grade. I love working at Timber Creek, and I am excited to be your child's teacher!!
Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions or concerns. Together we will make your child's 1st Grade year a success!

Reminders

We have started using Prodigy in our classroom and the kids are really excited about it! Please encourage you child to use Prodigy at home. It is a great way to build math skills!!

Right now, I am in the process of leveling my students.  I hope to be finished in the next couple of days.  I will be sending Book Bags home as soon as I know your child's reading level.  When your child brings their book bag home, please have them read their book to you each night.  They should bring their book bag to school everyday.  I will not send a new book home if they do not have their bag.  I will change the book out each week.  

*Computer lab days are Wednesday.  Please keep sending in the headphones (we will use them every week)

K-2 open house is re-scheduled for the 21st; I hope to see everyone there! This is the time to come in and find out about the nuts and bolts of our classroom and first grade.

Parent Reader and Prodigy

Parent Reader

I would like to invite any parents, older siblings, grandparents, relatives, or other special people to surprise your child by being a Parent Reader this year in our classroom. Students LOVE having their family, friends, and relatives visit our classroom to share in our learning by reading a favorite story aloud to our class. Parent Readers will visit us on Fridays at 1:20 each week. Readers are asked to bring 3 books to choose from. To be a reader you must have already filled out the volunteer application and completed the background check!! If you have not been cleared by the district you will not be allowed to come back to the classroom.

Prodigy

Thank you to the parents who have helped their kiddos log on to prodigy math. If you haven't managed to yet, I encourage you to try this week. It takes a few times to really get going, but the kids love this program, and it really does encourage a lot of math practice. Their logins were  in their homework folder last week.

Week of Aug. 22 - 25

 
Hi Parents!
 
We had a great first day! I loved getting to know your children and I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
 
Our Objectives for this week will include getting to know one another, understanding our classroom rules and expectations, and to have fun while learning!
 
A note about snacks: We will have a time at the end of the school day to have a healthy snack.  Each child is responsible for bringing their own snack.  They will not be allowed to share food.  Snacks should be easy to open, not require a utensil to eat it with, and not be messy.  Please note that we have a peanut allergy in our classroom, so be mindful when choosing snack options.  Healthy snack ideas: graham crackers, goldfish crackers, fruit chews, cereal, cheese sticks, etc.  Water bottles may also be used in the classroom.  Sports pop tops are ideal to help prevent spills.  Only water is allowed in the water bottles.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!
