Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Beam

 

Welcome to My Classroom

 My name is Toni Beam and I am a 5th grade teacher at FLWES! I have been in Kannapolis City Schools since 2014 and have loved every minute of it. The children, the staff, and the administration far exceeded my expectations everyday. I have taught Physical Education, Health, Fourth grade, and Fifth Grade. I grew up in Rowan County and moved to Kannapolis in 2013. I'm looking forward to meeting my new students in August!

Feel free to contact me by email or by school phone at (704) 932-8656.

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

All children deserve to explore and learn from the world around them. I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. As an educator, I want to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.  For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them.



What We are Studying:

Over the summer, please make sure your child knows how to multiply and divide with whole numbers fluently. We will be multiplying and dividing with decimals and fractions next year so they need this foundational knowledge. 

 

Things parents/guardians can do to help:

Papers (from the office and classwork) are sent home during the week in their Take Home Folders. Please make sure you check this at least once a week. Your child may use this as their homework folder as well. 

Please sign up with me on Remind.com for important announcements, homework, and information.
If your child is in my homeroom the code is beamhom

 

Online Resources:

Dreambox: This is an app that your child uses on a regular basis at school (20-30 minutes twice a week). Their subscription is paid for by the school. It is a math app. It takes about 20-30 minutes to complete one lesson on Dreambox. It is leveled to meet your student at their current math level. Your child’s login information is in the front of their agenda.

School code: 

Front Row: This is a free app that I have used for a few years. I use this app for math practice. They are able to choose which strand they want to work on (Geometry, Base 10, Fractions, etc) and it starts them off with a pretest in each strand to help match them to activities that would be appropriate for them. They can play this for any amount of time. Your child’s login information is their first name, their last name, and the Class Code listed below.
