Mrs. Cindy Means
Welcome to Mrs. Means 2/3 combo class!
I'm very excited for this school year as it is a year of changes and challenges, which means growth and meeting goals :D
Our theme for our class this year is teamwork. I love the theme of teamwork because of all of the skills we will be working on which relate to sports and working on a team to achieve our goals. This ties in well with the excitement and achievement students see watching the Summer Olympics (Rio - 2016). Just like these athletes we will be setting goals in school that will challenge us, make us grow, and let us celebrate in our achievements.
We will be learning Social Skills as we learn how to effectively work as a team, supporting each other, helping others out, and accepting support from others.
We will be learning individual goal setting as we choose the academic goals we want to achieve, make a plan to work on them, and celebrate our successes as we grow.
We will also be working on growing and improving the whole child. In addition to building a love of reading, and the skills and tools needed to make it a joy rather than a punishment, we will work on writing to explore and express out ideas; Math to learn not only how to solve problems, but to express and share how we solve problems; Science and Social Studies, where we can apply our learning and ideas to our world; Physical education
I have had a widely varied road that has brought me to this year of teaching and growing your child.
