About Amy


Bio

I am a 1st grade teacher, who has experience in using the new Common Core Standards. I have 2 years of first grade experience and 2 years of third grade experience.

I look for the best way for my students to learn and I make the necessary changes in the traditional setting to meet the needs of my students. Some examples are: using magnetic letters to complete a spelling test instead of paper and pencil, using flash cards and counter for a timed math fact drill instead of paper and...

I am a 1st grade teacher, who has experience in using the new Common Core Standards. I have 2 years of first grade experience and 2 years of third grade experience.

I look for the best way for my students to learn and I make the necessary changes in the traditional setting to meet the needs of my students. Some examples are: using magnetic letters to complete a spelling test instead of paper and pencil, using flash cards and counter for a timed math fact drill instead of paper and pencil. I have used flash cards in dolch word memorization (common words in literature) and use dolch word phrases in building oral reading fluency. Oral reading fluency is key to becoming a reader. I also use short reading passages to teach reading comprehension strategies, focusing on looking back in the passage to locate answers.

I like to use different math strategies to help with math. The use of manipulatives (counters, foam blocks, connecting cubes, etc.) is very important to me when teaching math.

For writing instruction, I use creative ways in getting students to express themselves. With writing instruction, I've found that gentle corrections go a long ways. Slow and steady work will improve the writing process.
