Kindergartners at Hunter Elementary are happy and making tremendous progress with the loving care of their amazing teachers, Kris Handley and Kelly Stevens!

These five and six year old students enjoy learning using technology. They are using iPods and QR codes to practice reading. They are also using iPads and OSMO.

OSMO helps them to learn letters, sight words, numbers and to do a variety of math activities including the use of tan-grams. They are masters of the

Mimio interactive board and enjoy interacting with a number of programs on it including one of their favorites: pinkcatstudio.com.

They work independently at their computer center and especially enjoy starfall.com to help them with their reading. Kris and Kelly successfully use PLC time to plan for the success of all their students.

Principal, Kayla Mackay, describes the progress their Kindergarten students are making under the care of these two top notch teachers.
