Welcome to Kindergarten!

A little about me.  My name is Tionna Bahill. I am known as Mrs. Tionna by our students.
I grew up in sunny Tucson, Arizona. Where I lived for 28 years!
I attended Northern Arizona University, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (K-8) with minors in Chemistry and Biology and  Ed. Specialties in Special Education and Structured English Immersion in 2006.
In 2006-2007 I taught a First Grade self contained GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) classroom.
In 2009, I received my Master of Education in Early Childhood Education with Ed specialties in Reading and Writing.
My husband and I moved to New Hampshire and I began teaching Kindergarten at Mount Saint Mary Academy in 2009. I taught Kindergarten for 3 years.
I am a blessed mother of two.
Our son, Xander was born in 2011 and at the end of the school year, 2012, I decided to take a break from teaching to raise my family. Our daughter, Eliana was born in 2014.
In 2017, I was called back to the classroom to teach Pre-kindergarten at Mount Saint Mary Academy and blessed to work along side of the wonderful Mrs. Jaime Lewandowski.
The summer of 2018, I once again became a Kindergarten teacher at Mount Saint Mary Academy.  Which is where I am very blessed to be.  I love my job, I love this school and I love this community.
When I am not teaching,  you can find me on the soccer field, football field, or dance studio enjoying my children.

Weekly Update

I pray you had a blessed Christmas and happy New Year. I was blessed with wonderful quality time with my family and I'm all caught up on our laundry!🙊I can't wait to see all of you and hear about your break!

This week we will be reviewing all of the letters we have learned Aa-Jj. We will be working on recognizing, counting, adding and subtracting numbers 0-10. We will be also be creating artwork for our classroom bulletin board's.
We will be diving right into reading. We will be learning word families each week and
I will also be sending home sight word flash cards for each student. We will focus on 5 words each week. Please help your Kindergartners practice these at home. I will also be sending home "Books in a Bag". The bag will include 3 books that are leveled to your child. These are for home reading practice. They are intended for you to keep and to be read until your child has mastered them. Once they have mastered each book in their bag, please return them and I will send home 3 new books.
It's also time to start the initial phase of our Kindergarten Share Fair project. The first part of this process will be to have your children pick a New Hampshire woodland animal! Please have your children bring in a list of their top 3 animal choices. I will be sending a form for them to write (with your help)their top three animal choices.
