   Hi families and students!

      My name is Taryn O’Mara and I am so excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year.  I graduated from Monmouth University with a dual certification in elementary education and special education as well as a degree in history.  I am currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Literacy at Montclair State University.  This is my fifth year teaching here at School 3 and I cannot be more excited to get to know my students and their families.

      The first year of school is always exciting as we watch the students become familiar with friends and establish new routines. I am confident that together we can help your child have a successful kindergarten experience! I have created a twitter account for families to follow our class throughout the year as we grow and learn.  Communication is key in my classroom, please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. My email is taryn.omara@bellevilleschools.org. 

      There are many adventures that await us in Kindergarten. I cannot wait to experience them with you! Let’s make this an AWESOME year! 





Google Classroom

Good morning all, 
You should have received an email from our district technology coordinator regarding google classroom.  In the coming weeks, we are going to be posting more in depth assignments and activities on google classroom to try and give our students as much normalcy as possible. Please join the "School 3 Kindergarten" google classroom at your earliest convenience.  If you did not receive the email or are still unsure of how to join google classroom, please reach out to me! 
As always, stay safe and most importantly, healthy!!!

Week 2

Good morning, 
I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend with your families.  The sun was shining and hopefully you got the opportunity to get outside a bit.  I am posting the link for your work that needs to be completed for week 2! There have been some more interactive websites and support added to the directory. These include digital read-alouds, virtual tours, podcasts, suggested phys. ed. activities, and more! 
As always, I am here all day to answer any questions you may have!

Distance Learning Day 5

Happy Friday!!!! (All my kiddos know that Friday is my favorite day of the week)
We have almost made it through week one of learning from home.  I miss you all very much but I am confident that your grown ups are helping you do your very best work at home!! 
Do not forget to read, read, read!!!!!

Distance Learning Day 4

Happy Spring!!!!!!
This is not quite how we all thought we would be spending our first day of spring.  When you are done with your school work for the day maybe you can see if you have any supplies for these Disney spring crafts.

Distance Learning Day 3

Good morning kindergarten crew, 
Once again, I hope this message finds you and your families well.  I want to remind everyone that IXL ( https://www.ixl.com/signin/bellevillesd ) is a great resource for us to use during this time.  If you need me to give out your user name and passwords again just email me!
The sun is shining, don't forget to get some fresh air!
Miss you all!!!

Distance Learning Day 1

Good morning and happy Monday kindergarten families, 
I hope you all are staying healthy during this trying time and are embracing the time you are spending with your family members. This a great time to practice reading with a family member and get outside to enjoy the fresh air!  I am available via email every day during school hours.  I can also set up a video chat if any of my students need help or have questions! Please feel free to reach out about anything.  I will be using this page to post some helpful resources for my students and families.

Distance Learning Day 2

Happy Tuesday!! 
I hope you are all doing well during this time and staying healthy.  A fan favorite among our class this year has been "Cosmic Kids Yoga" https://www.cosmickids.com/ . We usually do this after recess to calm down and regroup before language arts instruction.  I thought today would be a good day to share the link with you all in case the students need some movement to do inside since the weather is not so great right now! Again, if you have any questions or need assistance with the assignments please reach out!!
