My goal this (and EVERY) year is to make your child excited about coming to school daily!!! I want them to be enthusiastic about sharing their learning experiences with you! I promise to make their learning meaningful and fun. I want each child to feel safe and valued in our classroom. We will work hard but also find time to enjoy the whole process of learning. 
I strongly believe that it takes a team to educate a child and I welcome your input and concerns always! Please feel free to come visit our class anytime! Thank you in advance for your trust, support and cooperation as we start this terrific year! 
I will use this blog and the Seesaw App to communicate what we are learning each week. I hope you check back often and enjoy the photos of learning in action!!!  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at

We are so thankful to all of the hard workers at Publix for helping us how the availability of resources affects our decisions.

 It was a great way to investigate goods and services in action!

Message from Ms. Mansfield

Dear Teasley Families:

We are quickly approaching the end of this school year and it has been FANTASTIC!! Thank you so much for all of the support you have given this year! We have made great progress towards our candidacy for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program and had our first official visit by the IB Organization. We received great feedback on our progress and we have outlined our action plan moving forward. We hope you have heard quite a bit about what your children have learned over the course of the year and have seen them engaged in the learning process. Our teachers have worked hard this year on what it is like to teach through inquiry and hopefully you are seeing your children become more and more curious and researching things that are interesting to them.

We are in full planning mode for 2019-20. One of the most important processes in preparing for a successful year is student placement. Providing each child with excellent instruction in an engaging, inviting, and safe atmosphere is critical. Careful attention is given to each individual child during the placement process. Our goal is to create well-balanced heterogeneous classrooms, giving much thoughtfulness to student strengths and needs in regards to academic proficiency, social competency, emotional maturity, behavioral dynamics, and learning styles. While our highly qualified teachers subscribe to consistent standards, their delivery methods are unique. We work to match each student with the teacher who will best meet their needs.

Because our teachers know their students well, and know where they will be successful as they progress through school, they will have extensive input on class placement. If there is information of which we are unaware that you would like for us to consider, you may submit a letter or e-mail to me by Friday, May 10th . Letters should be submitted in a sealed envelope, or e-mailed to me at Requests for specific teachers should not be made and will not be considered. Those letters and emails will be returned to be revised. A description of your child’s learning style and needs, an unusual family situation, or a special learning environment is all that will be needed. Every child will be thoughtfully placed regardless of whether or not a letter is received. Individual conferences with administration are not necessary.

Your child’s success is our goal, and we are grateful to be partnering with you!!

Experimenting with sound! We listened to the story Moses Goes to a Concert. We felt our balloons vibrate as we listened to music. We spent time experimenting with vibrations, pitch, volume, and creating our very own instruments!

Thank you to Ava's mom for being our mystery reader.

Making our instruments. Thank you for all of the wonderful donations!
