Hello from Mrs. Abbey Woelmer!
(formerly Miss Doering)


All About Me

This is my fifth year teaching second grade at Timber Creek Elementary. I grew up in Hubbard, Iowa and have loved living here in Texas. In 2012
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) with a degree in
Elementary Education with a double minor of literacy and science. In Texas
that means I am certified to teach EC-6. I love teaching second grade and have so much fun watching students soak up information throughout the year.

This summer my husband and celebrated our first wedding anniversary! We have been very blessed to have so many family and friends around us this as we helped three of my in-laws celebrate weddings this year. (Yes that will be four family weddings in fourteen months for my husband's family.) Jacob is originally from Nebraska but moved to Plano when he was ten years old. He is a civil engineer and loves everything connected to Texas A&M. 

My family all live in Iowa and I usually go back to visit them over long holidays. My mom and dad live on farm where they grow corn and soybeans. Their dog Jango, an English Shepherd, is the baby of the house as my mom spoils him rotten now that they are empty-nesters. My mom is also a teacher and teaches K-4 Title 1 Reading. I have two brothers, Carter and Joshua. Carter works for a media company in Ames, Iowa and gets to video many sporting events and coaches across the country. Joshua is also working in Ames for an investment company and loves being apart of their company sporting events. 

In my free time I love to sing, dance and read a good book with a cup of
coffee. I also like to spend time with my friends and family back in Iowa but
also enjoy making all kinds of new friends in Texas!
 
My Favorite Things: 
Colors: Turquoise, Red and Gold
Drink: Caramel Latte 
Snack: Granola bars, chocolate, and lots of fruit
Stores: Target, Amazon, and Aldi

I can't wait to meet you this year and get to know you soon!

-Mrs. Woelmer

They can be a little tricky when we are also looking for specific syllables in words too.

01-17-18 A Wacky Winter Wednesday!

1/17/18
Good afternoon! 
 
It sure has been an interesting start to 2018! I'm happy to report that we will be back at school tomorrow. I hope that you enjoyed this unexpected time off with your family! 
 
On Friday, a note was sent home explaining a Cultural Traditions project for social studies. I hope you had time to read over that paper and begin the research at home. Your child is welcome to choose one of the countries listed on the sheet but are not limited to the list if they are excited about a specific country's holiday and traditions. We will continue this project as planned. Please make sure your child has the pictures/research finished and at school NO LATER than Monday, January 22. You may send it in as soon as you are ready. We will keep it safe at school until we work on the project on Monday. Please note that students must write their paper and create their poster in class. Thank you for participating in this project at home!
 
We will postpone our weekly spelling test until next week and there is no homework for the rest of this week. (I hope your child has found time to enjoy a good book though. :)

For math we will continue to practice adding three digit numbers. We will take last week's fact test tomorrow. That test will cover using doubles. Students will take this week's fact test on Friday. It will cover using 10 to add. This means that students can use their facts to make 10 to solve a problem. If the problem is 9+2=?, I know that 9+1=10 so one more is 11. 
 
In science students will continue to discuss saltwater and freshwater. We will identify where we can find saltwater and freshwater in different bodies of water. These bodies of water include: ponds, lakes, streams, glaciers, rivers, oceans and swamps/wetlands. 
 
During social studies students will discuss how families have changed over time. We will discuss the importance of communities celebrating different cultural holidays. Now would be a great chance to share stories about when you were little. How have things changed and has anything stayed the same? Students may enjoy asking these kinds of questions to other relatives, such as grandparents or aunts and uncles, too. 
 
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
