All About Mrs. Miller

I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science
in Elementary Education. This is my twenty eighth year teaching, and my
fourteenth year to teach in Tomball ISD. I spent the first 14 years teaching in
Humble ISD where my teaching experience included kindergarten, second, and
third grade. My love for teaching and children is what keeps me finding new
ways to increase the excitement for learning in my students. The key to
learning is keeping enthusiasm high and fostering teacher/student
relationships.

My husband and I have two boys.  Ramsey, our oldest is entering his junior year in college.  Reagan is a freshman at Mc Murry University in Abilene and is a member of the football team.  We will be burning up the road to and from Abilene this year.  Our family loves the fall because we are huge football fans!   We spend our Friday nights watching the Wildcats under the lights.   We enjoy watching the Aggies and try to attend a few games during the season.   

We spend our family time watching football, traveling Texas, and visiting with family and friends. We love our summer trips to Garner State Park!

I look forward to a fantastic year with you and your child.   If you even have any questions or concerns please email me at:  roseannmiller@tomballisd.net

State Presentations

Here's what's new in Mrs. Miller's Class

Spelling - Homework blue folder will be sent home every Friday with the new words for the following week.   The spelling folder that should go back and forth to home and school every day.  For homework, students should study the pattern for the week, not just memorize the 16 words on the list.  This week's spelling pattern will have words with -ou (can NOT be used at the end of the word) and -ow (can be used at the end of the word) Visit spellingcity.com for extra practice.

 
Reader's Workshop - In Language Arts the students have selected a state to research.  They will be collecting information about the state capital and symbols, bordering states, year of statehood, bodies of water in that state, major cities, industries as well as come interesting facts about their state.   The students will use all of the information to write a persuasive paper trying to get persuade someone to visit their state.   We will be working on our research for another week or two so don't expect too many reading papers for now.   Have your child show you the google presentation located in their google chrome drive.
 
 
Math -We are moving into area, perimeter and measurement next week.   This is a short unit and we will be testing over these skills the following week.  Look for things to measure around the house.   If you have tile floors see if your child can find the area in a bathroom. 
 
Science -In Science we are learning about plants.  We have dissected seeds and planted our potato heads this week.  Lots of hands on activities going on in class as we learn about plants needs and parts.   

Field Trip-April 6th

The Second Grade field trip to the Tomball Museum Center is on Thursday, April 6th. Unfortunately, due to limited space, only the homeroom parent will be chaperoning at the museum.  Your child will need to bring a disposable lunch with their name on it and a drink to school that day.  

Parents are welcome to join us for lunch and fun at Jerry Matheson Park after the museum.  It is located at 1240 Ulrich Rd. Tomball, TX  77375.  Due to space constrictions, we request only parents meet us at the park.  Please make other arrangements for younger siblings. 

We are looking forward to a wonderful day!
