I wrote this little song a few years back when my students were having trouble remembering the sound made by OW and OU. I started calling them "The Pinching Sounds" and then this song followed. It's sung to the tune of "The Five Little Ducks."

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 19 years of teaching experience with primary children. Most of those years have been with children in 1st and 2nd grades, as well as intensive reading remediation with K-3 students and serving as our school's literacy coach for 4 years. I am currently teaching first grade and LOVING it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe children learn best in classrooms that are highly engaging and cooperative in design, with a focus on multisensory instruction. A balanced literacy program and integrated studies are important to me so children experience a connectedness throughout their day and across the year.
