Welcome to our classroom.  I have had the opportunity to teach Pre-K, second, and first grade.   This is my fifth year at Mulvane.  This is my fourth year teaching in the preschool program at Munson.  Teaching has been very rewarding.  I enjoy helping the students of our community learn more about the environment around them.     

We have a lot of fun learning in our room.  We use different ways to explore and learn about the environment around us.  We work hard to prepare for kindergarten.  We learn concepts through themes.  We have calendar everyday.  During calendar we work on counting, number recognition, color recognition, shape recognition, patterning, and other skills.  We also have a time for a language activity.  We read a book and answer questions to strengthen comprehension.  We then complete an activity to go along with the book or theme.  At the end of the day, we have hands on centers.  We listen to books, work on math skills and fine motor skills, work together to strengthen our social skills, work on writing and coloring, and more. 

We also get to attend specials each day.  The students have check-out at the library every Tuesday.   Please remember to return books by Tuesday.  The students are also asked to wear tennis shoes on PE days. The following is our schedule for specials for this year.

Each day a small healthy snack is provided with milk or water.  Each student is asked to bring in a healthy snack for the whole class at the beginning of each month.  We ask that no peanut products be brought for snack.  

We go outside to our playground as many days as the weather will allow. Please make sure to dress your child according to the weather.  

 If you have questions about our program, I can be reached at jhankins@usd263.k12.ks.us .   I look forward to hearing from you.
