Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my teacher page! I am so happy you are here. I am very excited to be your child's teacher this school year. This school year will be filled with fun, and a whole lot of learning! I have been a Buffalo Public School District for 3 years, and I love it! At home I am a wife, and a mommy to three little boys! Our favorite family time is when we are attending my oldest sons hockey and lacrosse games, and having dinner together around the table. I love reading biographies, and learning about people from our history.
Due to school closure there will be assignments that you can help your child with in order to continue their academic success. Please be sure that you have connected with me on Class Dojo. If you have not yet been able to access Class Dojo please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
All at home learning packets were delivered or picked up by family members. I will continue to add learning materials utilizing Clever. Clever can be found on the Buffalo Schools web page under Student Resources. Some of our favorites are MobyMax, Levix Core 5, Quill, and Think Central. Some newer apps we will be utilizing are Pearson EasyBidge for Science and Continental eBooks for additional Math pracitce. Continental eBooks pairs with our Finish Line books which our students are very familiar with. Additionally your child has access to Zearn, there he or she can watch the lessons that we have previously been taught in class.

Day 3: Have your child read the story to you.
Day 4: Read the story together.
Questions to ask about the story:

What is the main idea? or What is the story mostly about?
Did the main character have a problem?
How did the characters solve the problem?

Science and Nature
Go for a walk, sit on the porch. What animals and plants do you see? Talk about what those animals and plants need in order to grow. Before school closed we were discussing what certain animals and plants need in order to survive. What types of habitats they need to grow in? What types of habitats wouldn't be safe for them to grow.
Before school ended we were talking about members in our community and government. Who is important in our community to keep us safe? What types of jobs do they have? What types of rules do we have to follow in our own community? Share stories of important people in your own community when you were younger. Are any members in your family part of community helpers or town government?
