Bio

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  My name is Donna Roberts.  Prattville has been my home since 2002.  I enjoy camping, spending time at the lake and with my family.  My daughter, Kayla and her husband Jack live in Fairhope.  I am super blessed to have 2 amazing grandchildren.  Nova Jaymes is 4 1/2 and Riggs is 10 months old.  My son, Logan married his college sweetheart, Sarah this summer and they live in Auburn, where they both graduated a couple of years ago.   I also have a precious, crazy cocker spaniel named Toby.  

I got my BS in Elementary Education from University of Montevallo in 1985 and my Master's in Early Childhood Education from Georgia College in 1987.  This will be my 36th year of teaching, 18 of those being in 2nd grade.  I have also taught kindergarten, 3rd grade and Remedial Reading.

I am very excited about this school year, and look forward to meeting my new students and their parents.  I strive to meet the needs of  each of my students , and pray for them regularly as if they were my own.  I believe in providing a classroom environment where all students can FOCUS on learning and can be successful, which is why you will find structured, yet fun and motivational activities taking place at any moment.  Thank you for allowing me to be one of the most important influences in your child's life.  For that reason I ask for you to cover me in prayer.   I look forward to partnering with you through this exciting journey.

Calendar

Behavior Management Plan

Located in our classroom is a behavior management “Rules” board.  It states that  

                                                      Fabulous Frogs:

                   1.  Listen and follow directions (in a timely manner)

                   2.  Treat others, self, and school with respect.

                   3.  Complete Work - to the best of their ability.

Each child has a frog on the board with his/her name on it.   All frogs begin the day on the board.  Frogs remaining on the board the entire day will get a sticker on their behavior calendar that day.  Students who earn a sticker every day that week will get to participate in Fun Friday.

 

Misbehavior or failure to follow any of the rules results in the child’s frog “hopping” from the board to the log.  This will result in NO sticker for that day, but he/she will still get to participate in “Fun Friday.” 

 

If the child continues to break the rules, the frog“lands in hot water,” which means he/she will not receive a sticker on the chart for that day and will lose 15 minutes of “Fun Friday.” 

 

If the child’s frog gets removed from the water into the red basket, he/she does not get a sticker, has silent snack, and loses 15 min. of Fun Friday.  

**Four or more “red baskets” in 2 weeks will result in an office referral.

 

Students who have all stickers at the end of the month will get to visit our “Treasure Wagon.”

           

Other opportunities to be rewarded when “caught making good choices” occur throughout the day.  Earned tickets can be traded for classroom reward coupons. Positive behaviors for group and whole class can accumulate, and result in group or class reward.  

 

Fun Friday Plans

We will have Fun Friday:

- in our classroom, where students will be able to play with games and toys designated just for that time (legos, tinker toys, marble maze, building gadgets, car tracks, magnets, Sorry, Life, etc.)

-outside, where students can free play with balls, chalk, bubbles, etc.

 

 **We are always in need of “cool” things for our “Treasure Wagon.”  These can be new or used (good condition).  When cleaning out or going to yard sales, or obtaining unwanted Kids’ Meal toys, Target $1 items, small playdoughs, etc. please think of us!!

 

Thank you so much for your help!!

Supply List

2022-2023

 

We are very fortunate and grateful that ACBOE will be providing most of our students' supplies again this year. There are still some items, however that we need for our classroom to run more smoothly.  We would appreciate so much if you could donate any of these "wish list" items:
