Ms. Jenny

I have been teaching at Dayton's Bluff Elementary since 2015.  I love to watch my prekindergarteners grow and learn from the beginning of the year to the end. We learn about making friends, letters, numbers, and counting! 

I grew up in Wisconsin, but have lived in Minnesota since college. I love being outside and finding time to explore nature!  My favorite activities in the summer are camping and hiking. During the school year I also find time to be outside and encourage my students to do the same!

Literacy Corner

  • Alliteration

    Beginning Sounds, that are the same. That's Alliteration! "Cat, Cookie, Cake, Start the same."

    Have a long ride planned?  Try to think of words that start with the same sound (use your child's name to start, then work on other family member names).  An alphabet book can help come up with ideas, but remember you are listening for the same sound, which isn't always the same letter (example: kite and cookie start with the same sound or cereal and snake start with the same sound).


Math Corner

  • Subitizing!

    Subitizing Means: Knowing how many without counting (1 to 5 objects)

    Help your child practice subitizing at home.  While playing with your child place 1 to 5 items of whatever they are playing with in front of them and ask them, "How many ___ are there?" They may have to count at first, but they will eventually be able to start recognizing how many without counting.  You can also use dice, dominoes, or your fingers.  While in the car, on the bus, or walking outside ask how many windows on the house, how many cars, people, flowers, etc.
