Miss Steffan's Classroom

WELCOME TO OUR CLASS! 

***********************************************************************

My name is Maddie Steffan and this is my first year teaching! I am so excited to gets started with your students here at Mohawk! In 2014, I graduated from Leipsic High School and furthered my education in Columbus at The Ohio State University. I earned my B.S.Ed. in Early Childhood Education and am licensed to teach PreK-3rd grade. I'm currently living in Findlay, and will be getting married this June! 

In Our Classroom, we are...

English/LA:
Welcome March! We are introducing a new set of sight words: List 7. 
me
 
this
 
what
 
help
 
up
 
down
 
love
 
one
 
two
 
three
 
Guided reading is in full swing. Students will get new books about once a week. Please continue to read with your child each night. It is SUPER important that they are pointing to each word as they read it. 
 
Math: We are focusing our attention on learning coins this week. So far, we have introduced a penny and a nickel. This week will cover dimes and next week quarters. We will be working towards being able to exchange different coins for the right amount and being able to count how much money is there. We'll still continue working on 3D shapes and addition/subtraction, but this will be more of a review. 
 
Science: Our Earth and Sky chapter in the science book has been talking about weather patterns and how our sky can look different each day. We've been monitoring the weather and deciding if "in like a lion and out like a lamb" is true!
 
Social Studies: We'll be exploring maps and how you can use location to find things. We'll also be doing our "Me on the Map" activity to relate this concept to our own lives. 
What we will be learning:
