I will make myself available to meet with you anytime you have questions concerning your child's progress or any questions you may have about our classroom.  Simply call the office (724-2309 ext. 4633)  and leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  I can also be reached by email - cworley@pngisd.org

  • Snacks

    Be sure to check your child's Indian Notebook each month for the snack calendar. You will be asked to bring snacks once a month for the whole class (22 students). Please refer to the suggested snack list that was in the purple folder at "Meet the Teacher" night. We do have some students with allergies to nuts, so please DO NOT send any food items with peanuts, peanut butter or any kinds of nuts …

  • Homework

    Please practice letters and letter sounds with your child a few minutes every night. Also begin counting with your child and see how far they can count. But the most important activity you can do each night is READ to your child. This is the best way to teach your child how to read and to love to read!

  • INDIAN Notebooks

    Be sure to check your child's "Indian Notebook" each night. You will find very important notes and daily work. Sometimes there will be homework in the front pocket for you to help your child complete at home. Also be sure to look at the behavior pocket that is attached in the front of the notebook. Inside the pocket you will find a card (purple, orange or yellow). They card will indict your …

  • Classroom Management

    Posted by CHERYL WORLEY on 1/8/2018 8:00:00 AM
    I believe that all children are capable of behaving well
     in the classroom. That being said, here is our behavior plan:
    Our class has 6 rules and we will review them every day:
    1. Listen when someone is talking.
    2. Follow directions quickly and quietly.
    3. Raise your hand to speak.
    4. Respect others. Respect yourself. Respect your school.
    5. Be safe. Be honest.
    6. Make your teachers happy.
    If your child is spoken to about a rule, I will fill out a form. This does not mean they were "in trouble" or that they necessarily had a consequence. It just means we talked about it and your probably should too. If your child has an issue that is concerning me, I will either send you a note OR call you. 
    In addition, each day the students will receive a card (in their Indian Notebooks) representing their behavior for that day. Please check the card and return it the next day.

    PURPLE- The teacher recognized me as having an AMAZING day.
    ORANGE-  I was right on track and did what I was told. 
    YELLOW - I had several warnings about behavior.

    I expect your child to be on orange every day. Purples will be awarded when deserved and not a daily thing. 
    This system, will, of course, be taught to your children in class AND there will be supports in place to ensure your child is reporting the correct color card. You will be surprised at how capable and honest your child will be using this system. Please let me know if you have any questions! Thank you very much!
