    About Me
     Hello! My name is Tiffany Cleary. I am a second year teacher. I am excited to be a part of the Anawalt family! I will be teaching kindergarten and 1st grade this year.
     Classroom Management
    Inside my classroom, I make sure to to keep a safe, caring and positive environment for the children to learn. We have class expectations that we all follow daily.
    At the end of Kindergarten, your child should be able to do the following:


    • Ask/answer questions about key details of a literary or informational text.
    • Describe characters, setting and major events of a story using illustrations and details.
    • Blend sounds and read CVC word
    • Identify high frequency words.
    • Identify beginning, middle and ending sounds of words.
    • Read with purpose and understanding.


    • Speak and write in complete sentences.
    • Print all upper and lowercase letters.
    • Use capitalization and punctuation correctly.
    • Spell sight words correctly.
    • Create simple sentences.


    • Read, write and order numbers 0-20.
    • Count to 100 by ones and tens.
    • Add/subtract within 5 fluently.
    • Add/subtract within 10 using objects.
    • Identify equations that make 10 (9+1, 4+6, 5+5).
    • Know and understand place value (tens and ones).
    • Identify 2-D and 3-D shapes.
    • Compare sets of objects with numbers.  


    Anawalt Elementary staff will work with students and their families to support students’ success in the Next Generation Standards for reading and math. 

    Some of our key connections with families will be:  

    • Students and teachers will track student data through the use of a data binder.
    • Teachers will send home a “word wall” (high frequency word) list for each reading unit.  They will also provide families a list of the targeted reading skills for each story.
    • Teachers will also send home a parent/student friendly list of math and reading standards that must be met by the end of kindergarten.
    • Teachers will participate in after-school student/parent conferences, and math/reading night.
    • Teachers/students will set math and reading goals and monitor their progress.
    • Parent/teacher communications, signed papers, and homework will be sent home with the child in their student homework folder each week. 

    AT HOME 

    Anawalt Elementary staff and parents jointly developed ideas about how families can support students’ success in reading and math.  

    Some of our key at-home activities will be:  

    • Check the student homework folder each night and make sure homework is complete.
    • Monitor student progress.
    • Review letter names and letter sounds.
    • Review the high frequency words with my child through oral practice, games, flashcards, etc.
    • Read a story with my child each day and ask comprehension questions to be sure they understand the story.
    • Work with my child to identify and write numbers 0-20.
    • Practice addition and subtraction within 10.
    • Attend parent conferences and parent activities. 

    Anawalt Students

    Anawalt Elementary School students, staff and parents jointly developed these key ideas to make our children successful in reading and math.  Connections between home and school: 

    • Practice high frequency words daily.
    • Practice math facts daily.
    • Practice reading daily.
    • Complete homework assignments.
    • Monitor student reading and math goals.
