Transcript: Welcome to Open House Northeast Magnet 2013 Modeling Instruction in the classroom means giving kids complex science and technology problems to solve and letting them figure out how to solve them. Getting College & Career Ready ------------ Close Reading A Little About Me... Bachelors degree - Biology & English (2005) Alternative Science Teaching Certification Program (2006-2007) Masters degree - Neurobiology & Linguistics (Thesis defence in Fall, 2013) High School Science Teacher - Astronomy, Biology, Forensic Science, Science Research, Zoology (2006-2013) Computer Programmer / Science Writer - Allied Health Network & FARA, Inc. (1999 - 2006) Supervisor in the Work Release Program for the Louisiana Dept. of Corrections (1992 - 1995) I am married to a history teacher & football coach at Maize High School. We have 4 sons -- ages 18, 14, 13, and 9. We have a farm in Valley Center with two goats named Einstein and Newton, 8 pigs (2 are named Tesla and Galileo and the other 6 are temporary residents), a pony named Louis Pasteur because he lives in the pasture, and 7 laying chickens. We sell produce on weekends at the Sedgwick County Extension Farmer's Market. On a more personal note... My husband is a history teacher and football coach at Maize High School. I am the mother of four sons -- ages 18, 14, 13, and 9. We have a farm in Valley Center, KS with two goats named Newton & Einstein, 8 pigs (only two of which are named -- Tesla and Galileo), a pony named Louis Pasteur because he lives in the pasture, and 7 chickens. My sons grow produce and sell it at the Sedgwick County Farmer's Market. Who's going to fill that gap, and what skills will they need to fill it? Work Experience A Question Think about what it means to educate your son or daughter. Should their school be different from the ones you and I had growing up?

Transcript: Writing Goals Homework is an important part of learning. It is carefully planned and designed to give students an opportunity to practice what has been taught in class or to explore ideas we will be discussing during the next class. Most homework will be weighted according to its level and difficulty. Students with missing assignments will be asked to stay after the school day to complete. Homework is expected to be IN CLASS (printed) on the date that it is due, at the beginning of the class.

Transcript: I am a native Floridian, born and raised here in Orlando, Florida. I enjoy spending time with my family and taking trips to the beach. Your child will have homework Monday through Thursday. If there is a legitimate reason that the homework could not be completed, please send me an email or note. Should a child forget his/her homework or choose not to do it, he/she will complete it during a portion of their morning break time. Please sign your child's homework each night. Parents can teach important skills that enable children to be successful in school. Show your child ways to organize school supplies and materials so they can get their work done properly and efficiently. Parents can help children by designating times for homework and bedtime routines. Children can place backpacks and lunchboxes in a specific location at home to help with organization. Tips for Parents Procedures Contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time: juliedaniel@ABCschool.com (407)-555-1234 ext. 567 Connect Home and School Policies My name is Julie Daniel. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach first grade and explore many new things with your child this year. I use a discipline technique called THINK TIME. THINK TIME has two parts. The first part allows students to focus and gain self-control by asking them to either sit off to the side or move to another classroom. The second part provides the student feedback about their behavior and an opportunity to plan for future success in the classroom. If your child has been directed to THINK TIME, a paper will be sent home to be signed and returned the following day. “Parent involvement in education is like the frosting on a cupcake, it makes it complete and oh so sweet.” ~ Author unknown Snacks • Look at your work to make sure it's your very best work. • Put your work in the finished work basket. • Check your work folder for other work to do. • Choose a book and read quietly. •Raise your hand. •If the teacher is talking, wait until the teacher calls on you. •Be patient – Do not shout out. First Grade When You Are Finished Working During our first grade year, we will be learning to be better readers and mathematicians. We will also learn about the world around us by studying animals and their habitats, transportation, plants, and many other exciting topics. We will learn many new concepts while your child grows both academically and socially. This year will be a year of discovery and fun! Set up a Homework Station Entering the Classroom Birthdays are very special days for our first graders. You are more than welcome to bring small tokens to help your child celebrate during the last 15 minutes of the school day. If you would like to hand out birthday party invitations, please include all students in the class to avoid hurt feelings. Discipline Parents are encouraged to provide space at a kitchen or dining table or a desk area in a child's bedroom so a child can work free from distractions. The homework station needs to be well lit, comfortable, quiet, and stocked with any supplies necessary to complete the assignment. Parents should remain available to provide assistance and encouragement as needed. Walking in a Line Set Realistic Expectations It is important for parents to convey to their child that school is important as well as become involved in the classroom and support what the teacher does and teaches. Helping with homework and volunteering in the classroom are good ways to become actively engaged in your child’s school life. Thank you for coming to Open House ! When You Have a Question Give Children Tools to be Successful Best ways to contact Mrs. Daniel: email - juliedaniel@ABCschool.com voicemail - (407)-555-1234 ext. 567 Welcome to Open House at ABC School ! • Line up in order. • Face forward with no talking. • Keep your hands to yourself. • Walk quietly through the hall with your hands by your sides. Time is provided in the morning for students to eat a healthy snack. It is imperative that we keep our room free of all nut products. I would ask that candy, cookies, and other snacks with high sugar content be kept for home. School policy also dictates that drinks other than water are not allowed in the classroom. I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Elementary Education. I was a first grade teacher for 10 years and then took some time to be a stay at home mom. During the last two years, I have been a homeschool teacher in first, second, and third grade. I look forward to getting to know my students and their families throughout this year. There will be many opportunities to volunteer in the classroom and participate in school wide activities. I encourage you to become involved and share first grade experiences with your child this year. Set realistic expectations for your child based on his/her abilities and interests. When children are made to feel successful they are more likely to become motivated to continue trying and to continue

Independent work time is not a time to socialize. Email: MoniqueT@yahoo.com Help your child stay organized. Keep noise levels low, stay on the topic of the assignment, do not wander to other groups, everyone must participate. Make sure they know how important their education is to you. Exiting the classroom Math is a skill that is fundamental in todays society. From counting money, to tellling time, numbers are everywhere. My goal is to make sure that every student I encounter has a firm grasp of all mathematical concepts to ensure not only their success in school, but in everyday life. Entering the Classroom
