Mrs. Kristy Chism
I have been teaching since 1999. I have taught adults, college, high school, middle school, pre school and elementary in multiple locations around Washington state. I graduated from Central Washington University with a degree in elementary education and early childhood education. I continued my education from City University and got my Masters in Reading and a English as a Second Language endorsement.
I have 2 children, a black lab, and have been married for 22 years.
I enjoy Reading, the warm sun, College FOOTBALL, Seahawks, College Basketball, and baking.
Parents, Guardians, and Families,
If you have not discovered the TRANSLATE button in the top right hand corner, I just wanted to let you know about it. It will trnslate everything that is on the page. This is why I am posting weekly some things you can do at home. Technology unfortunately sometimes does not work. This is a place to go if you need direction on what to do for your child for the week. Click on the week tabs and read/ translate the information! Know that I miss your children and the classroom. We will get through this together! #OPStrong
****Distance Learning**** Use the STUDENT RESOURCES Tab to find ALL the district packets, links to online learning resources we use in class, Food and meal services....
There is no assigned homework that will come home. Your student should be practicing Reading and Math daily. If you see work coming home, your student is not using classroom time wisely to get their work done.
READING- Use home books until Book Bags come home. Book Bags at your students level come home in October.
1. Read just right books- no more than 5 errors-
20 minutes to Maintain Reading level
30-40 minutes to Increase Reading level
2. BOOK BAGS- Book Bags are at your students level. They are 3-4 books that your student should be able to read independently without help. Your student needs to read them aloud 3-4 times with NO mistakes. They also need to know:
a. main characters
b. problem in the story
c. any message that the author wants the reader to know
d. what the story was about (beginning, middle, and end)
e. favorite part
When this happens, your student should bring back their book bag to the teacher. They will read one book to the teacher and if they are fluent (sound like a teacher) they will get more books to practice and read.
1. Practice 1-10 Addition and Subtraction Facts (use flashcards)
Flashcards OR worksheets
