Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Sanders

     Hello and welcome to the start of a new year!. I am very excited to meet your children. This is going to be a very exciting and busy year. We will be implementing many new things this year. We will be working with the new Common Core Standards, as well as doing Project Based Learning (PBL). In fact our first PBL is going to start on the first day of school! This will be a focus of study called Be the BEST on the playground!. Our driving question is going to be How can we make the playground a fun and safe place to play? During this unit of study students will be learning and creating playground rules. Throughout the process students will be focused on building math skill (graphing and adding) and building their oral language skills as well as written. At the end of this unit of study students will create posters depicting playground rules and present their ideas to others.
         There are already some important dates I would like to share with you. There is no school on August 29 or September 1. Back to School Night will be on September 4. Parent/Teacher conferences will be October 20-24. If you need to contact me the best ways are before or after school or via email: ksanders@mpesd.org.
