Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Prohoniak

Hi, My name is Melanie Prohoniak,

Degree and experience:

I am a graduate of UNC-Greensboro. I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a teaching license in Birth-Kindergarten. I spent 5 years teaching for Asheboro City Schools. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with ACS. This is my second year at FLW. I have moved up to Kindergarten and am loving every minute of it.

I enjoy reading, going to movies and singing. But most of all, I love spending time with my family. 

Educational philosophy:
I believe that every child can learn. My goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging environment for my students. I feel that students should be encouraged to do their best and enjoy their time at school.

Below are a few of the key concepts we will be covering with your children in the Second Quarter!

  • ‚ÄčMath: Measurement
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Geometry: 2D Shapes
  • Social Studies: Culture: What do we have in common?
  • What makes us unique?
  • Family
  • Thanksgiving past and present
  • ELA: Retelling stories
  • Setting
  • Major events
  • Main Idea
  • Author and Illustrator
  • Characters
  • Capitalize the first word in a sentence
  • Form regular plural nouns
  • Spell simple words phonetically
  • Read common high frequency words by sight
  • Writing: Draws a well-developed picture
  • Writes about personal experiences
  • Retells own writing
  • Science: Changes in weather
  • Matter


 We have LOTS to cover and LOTS to learn. Please also remember to read with your child at home each night! It is always a great idea to practice counting and writing your child's name at home whenever you have the chance. If your child has mastered writing their name you can also practice learning sight words.
