  • Behavior Chart SystemEach student will have his/her name of a clothespin that is attached to a green color strip on a poster chartThe color strips on the chart move from green, to yellow, to blue, to red.The goal is for your child to stay on the green strip for the day by following classroom rulesIf your childs pin moves to yellow this is a warning that he/she needs to try to make better choicesIf your childs pin moves to blue, 10 minutes of recess is lostIf your childs pin moves to red, a note or phone call to the parent will be made and an entire recess will be lost

  • KROs Web Page InformationI use a class wiki page to give parents and students information about what is going on in our classroom, upcoming events, and important reminders.

    This is basically an electronic version of the monthly newsletters I will be sending home in the childrens folders.

    Students and parents can also go here to find fun games to practice skills being taught in class.

    Beginning in September, I will feature a Superstar of the Week page, on our wikispace. Look for your childs page when it is his/her Superstar Week.

    Go to and be sure to check out the video on the KROFUN page, to give your child a special preview of some of the fun things we do in Kindergarten.

    Important!!! Please fill out the Contact Information form that is found on the wikipage and submit it to me as soon as possible. It is found on the GENERAL INFORMATION FORM page of the wikispace. Thank you!

    This is something new that I am trying, this year. So bear with me if we have any glitches. You will always have a hard copy of the monthly newsletter. The site is just a backup and a fun addition.

    If you have any questions about using this site, please feel free to contact me at any time.
