This Week in Mrs. Broadway's Class!


 

 



I will use this section to post what we are covering in class. I will give a brief description of the skills being covered for each subject.  I will update my website at the end of each week or on Monday with all of the week's information.  :)

**FYI, I give a spelling "pretest" to my students every Monday.  If a student makes a 100 on their pretest, then they will have the privilege to play games during the posttest on Friday. 

This weeks' vocabulary and spelling words come from Unit 1 Lesson 2.  These words are located in your child's binder. 

Reading-

  •  Get the Facts

Grammar-

  •  subjects and direct objects 

Spelling- 

  • long u spelled _ew and _ue
  • homographs
  • multiple meaning words

                                               Homework

 

  • Daily: Students need to study their spelling words and reading vocabulary words/definitions.

Bio

 

My name is Kendra Broadway, and I'm a 3rd grade language arts teacher. I am privileged to teach at Daniel Pratt Elementary and be a part of what I believe is one of the most worthy professions in the world.  As your child enters my classroom, I hope they will notice what I see daily: a love of learning, a joyful environment, a bit of fun, and a lucky teacher who is able to enter the minds of her students every day. 

I grew up in Prattville, AL, but have also lived in Fort Walton Beach, FL and Incirlik AB, Turkey as a child.  I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate from Auburn University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  WAR EAGLE!  I also received my master's degree in Elementary Education from Troy University.  I am a highly qualified teacher and certified to teach grades K-6. 

I am happily married to my best friend, Will. We have a six-year-old son named Brock, and we have a two-year-old daughter named Blaire! We love doing anything active and outdoors. We love to play golf and enjoy playing together as a family. 

Some of my favorite things: peanut butter, reading, anything sweet, the color orange, swimming, sports – watching and playing, orange Kickstart drinks, Lake Martin, family, friends, church, my faith, and of course third graders!

Education:

Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6)----Auburn University--2008

Master's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6)----Troy University--2010

Experience:

2009-2010--2nd grade teacher: Daniel Pratt Elementary

2010-Present--3rd grade teacher: Daniel Pratt Elementary

My Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that every student deserves a committed, fair, and professional teacher.  Teachers influence many children and must always be a good example to those students. My philosophy of education is simple.  My goal is to meet each child where they are and to help, inspire, and encourage them to reach their potential.   A caring, enthusiastic, and motivated teacher can have an amazing impact on a child.  I will bring with me each day my love of children, positive motivation, responsibility, creativity, and knowledge.  Each student needs to have the skills necessary to move to the next level.  My goal is to teach them these skills. 

 I believe in active learning.   I want to structure my class around small and large group activities.   I see myself as a facilitator.  I want  to help my students to construct their own understanding.  A creative, engaging teacher makes learning fun for all learners.  Thinking of new lesson plans, new technology, and new perspectives are all essential qualifications.  Creative teachers never stop learning.  Their professional development is a key to their success. 

 My slogan in life: "Attitude is Altitude!"
