All About Me!

Hello! My name is Catherine Monaco. I am the UPK teacher in room 114. I taught Pre-K from 2008 to 2018 at St. Joseph's College. I have teaching certifications in General Education (Birth-2nd Grade, 1st-6th Grade) and Special Education (Birth to 2nd Grade). I also have a Master’s Degree in Literacy and I am currently working towards my teaching certification in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language).

Last year, I took a year off from teaching to study Greek, volunteer, spend time with my family and substitute teach in Kindergarten to 8th grade. I have four children and only have two left at home. My youngest is 14. I have a dog named Lucy. I love to travel, garden, read, build things, face paint, ski and have fun!

Thursday's Book Reading

After watching my intro video, go to our webpage a click on the link that's titled "Curious George Plants A Tree". This is the book that they are going to listen to. When you are finished listening to the book, then click on the file name Counting Trees Math Worksheet. This is going to be there activity that they are going to do. They are going to count the number of trees there are and write the number in the box. At the bottom of the worksheet there is a visual of how to write there numbers if they are still having trouble with that. Have a great day!

Wednesday's Book Reading

After watching my intro video about today's book, go to our webpage and click on the link that's titled "Planting a Rainbow". This is the book that they are going to listen to. Once you are done listening to the book, the activity that I would like you to do is draw a picture of flowers using the colors of the rainbow. Each flower should represent a color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple). At the top your your paper I would like you to write Planting a Rainbow. Have a great day!
