point, and then read everything.

* Every word gets one tap.

* Readers use “popcorn” snap words to anchor their Pointer Power.





* Ways to make numerals to 10

* 1:1 counting of objects to 10

* More/Fewer

* Comparing quantities within 10

* Tally Marks

I chose the OWL theme because it stands for Outstanding Wonderful Learners, which your students will become this year. I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher and look forward to working with you to make this a very special year. I also do send out messages via Remind. Sign up by texting the message @77a796 to number 81010. Please check my newsletters that come home and this website, to see what we are learning about in class. Please contact me via the email address on this page, if you have any questions or concerns.
