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!

Our objectives for the week are:

Media Release for Chicks

Hi Parents,
 
At a team meeting this morning our team started to talk about a project we do later in the year; every spring we hatch chicks. We wanted to look into getting a grant for a new chick habitat (using the same company we used for the butterfly grant), and when we started looking at the paperwork we saw that the due date for the application would be this Friday (eek!!). 
We are going to plow ahead and try to make this work, but we've had to rush to start the process. We are sending home a media release form for our application video (the non-profit that does the grants shows examples to other teachers). For your child to be included in the video we must have it back by tomorrow. We have to move too quickly on this to accept any after that.
Thank you for your help with this!

Butterfly Garden

Hi Parents!
 
Mrs. Grimes and I wrote a grant to get a butterfly garden for our school. Materials for it are arriving at 7:30 Thursday morning. If you are in the area and available, we could use some help unloading the items ( We have 40 cinder blocks, plants soil etc. arriving). Please let me know if you think you can help!!

ELA: spelling words with long o (test on Friday), readers will learn more strategies to use while reading (focus on consonant clusters and word endings such as -s, -ed, -ing.  *Consonant clusters or blends, are the names given to two or three consonants that appear together in a word. Each consonant retains its sound when blended.  An anchor chart will be shared with students.)  For writing we will loop back to writing small moments and trying to make our writing look like a famous author's writing.  This week we will look at a lot of Kevin Henkes books.

Hope you all had a wonderful and restful spring break!  Let's finish our school year strong with lots of learning!  Looking forward to seeing the kids on Tuesday!

Yearbooks

Online yearbook sales and 5th grade ad purchases closed out this weekend. We've asked the company to re-open sales through Friday; they have told us that the website should be live again tomorrow. This is the last opportunity to guarantee a yearbook.  We order a set number each year and can not re-order. When we sell out we are totally out! If you haven't ordered I encourage you to go to balfour.com and place your order this week!​
