Please visit this classroom webpage regularly. I will update it weekly with school events and reminders. My main means of communication will be through this classroom webpage, emails, and Remind 101. If you haven't already done so, please join Remind 101. It's a great way to receive reminders.

Lastly, please remember to call the office at 815.469.3366 if your child will be absent.

I CAN statements are simple sentences designed from Common Core Standards. They are written in student-friendly language. I CAN statements break down learning objectives into actions that students can read, understand and perform. In our class, I CAN statements are posted in front of the room and are read daily. This helps students to understand the expectations, become more responsible for their learning and more reflective of their work. Kindergarten Outcome Assessments are created from I CAN statements, which are posted on each assessment. This helps parents and students to have a clear visual of kindergarten expectations, and a better understanding of their childís development and growth.


I can identify upper and lowercase letters.
I can say the sound a consonant makes.
I can identify the initial, middle and ending letter/sound in a word.
I can separate and say the initial, middle and ending sounds in CVC words (c-a-t).
I can add or change letter
