 About Me

My name is Shatima Kemp. I am so excited to be a 5th Grade Teacher at Daniel Pratt Elementary School. I am from a small town called Beatrice, AL. After graduating high school, I started to pursue a career to become a registered nurse. I received my associates degree from Alabama Southern and was accepted into Auburn University of Montgomery nursing program. After much thought, I finally decided to pursue my passion, teaching. I graduated with my Bachelor's of Childhood Education in May of 2019. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Science in Elementary Education. This is my second year teaching! I have two children, Jesiah and Jayda, who I adore. When I am away from school, I love spending time with family, and enjoying the outdoors.

What’s Happening In Reading

Unit 3 Week 2

Story: Leonardo's Horse

Reading Skill: Main Idea & Details 

Vocabulary Skill: Greek and Latin Roots

The main idea is the most important idea about a paragraph, passage, or article. Details are small pieces of information that tell more about the main idea.

Unit 3 Week 3

Story: Waterhouse Hawkins

Reading Skill: Fact & Opinion

Vocabulary Skill: Homonyms

You can prove a statement of fact true or false. You can do this by using your own knowledge, asking an expert, or checking a reference source such as an encyclopedia or a nonfiction text.  A statement of opinion gives ideas or feelings, not facts. It cannot be proved true or false. A sentence may contain both a statement of fact and a statement of opinion.

 

 

 

 

 

What’s Happening In Lang. Arts

Unit 3 Week 2

A verb's tenses are made from four basic forms. These basic forms are called the verb's principal parts.

PresentPresent Participle PastPast Participle 
stop(is,are) stoppingstopped(has,have,had) stopped
ask(is,are) askingasked(has,have,had)asked

 regular verb forms its past and past participle by adding -ed to the present form.

  • The present and the past form can be used by themselves as verbs.
  • The present participle and the past participle are always used with a helping verb

Usually you add -ed to a verb to show past tense. Irregular verbs do not follow this rule. Instead of having -ed forms to show past tense, irregular verbs usually change to other words.

    Discipline Plan

    Classroom Rules and Expectations

    • Be Prepared
    • Always Try Your Best
    • Respect Yourself and Others
    • Keep Our Classroom Neat and Clean
    • Listen and Follow Directions

      Students will adhere to the Autauga County Board of Education Code of Conduct

      Consequences:

      I will keep my behavior chart, on which I will note any misconduct that occurs each day during the week. It corresponds with my classroom rules and expectations. If rules are not followed, I will address the situation and mark it on my chart. If a student has three or more marks on my chart for the week, a parent note will be sent home. Notes must be signed and returned the following day. If problems continue to occur, a phone call will be made. If students continue to misbehave or be disruptive after and note or a phone call, a parent/teacher conference will be scheduled during my planning period. Should there be any other problems after these steps have been followed, an office referral will be written. Severe misbehavior will elicit immediate action as needed. We will also be using Class Dojo. With Class Dojo, you will receive positive and negative  notifications of your child's behavior.
