I thought I would post this info that our team includes in the Bee Binders on the first day of school (if we have the lunch numbers available by then). Once each child knows their number and can enter it independently at lunch, I let them take a trip to the Treasure Tub once back in class. Last year, all but two children knew their lunch number by the end of the first week! Woohoo!!
Two upper grade teachers use this spreadsheet for their classes and they shared it with me. I LOVE it! I staple this sheet on the front of a large mailing envelope. This enables me to know exactly how much lunch money has been collected if ever a question arises.
As I check Bee Binders every morning, I write in the amount of money collected next to the child's name and list the total number of lunches to be bought that day, place the money in the envelope and send it with my lunch helpers to the cafeteria. The cafeteria staff has told me that they like the simplicity of this chart and how easy it is to read. They just return it to my mailbox every afternoon for me to pick up for the next day. Simple! Thank you, Mrs. Strode and Mrs. McFerran!
I teach Kindergarten and LOVE it! I have an amazing team of teachers that I work with and we are constantly challenging ourselves to come up with fresh, new ways to motivate five year olds to reach as far as they can go! Kindergarteners are funny, full of energy
and ideas and very loving-they are some of my favorite people.
This is my seventh year teaching Kindergarten at Providence and I am very happy to be here.
I am married and have two exciting,
interesting daughters that keep us very busy. My husband, Greg was active
duty military for 23 years which means we have lived in many different places-Georgia,
California, Alaska, Washington and Florida but our favorite place to be is
Huntsville, Alabama! We are very happy to call this our home. Shanley is 20
and a Junior at Auburn University. Delaney is 17 and is in her Senior year of High School. They love to visit my
classroom when they can and get to know the kids they hear me talking about
all the time!
We like to camp, go to movies, visit family, read, go to church, travel and
play with our
two dogs-Bomber and Cracker. It's an exciting life and I'm happy to share it with you!
