Welcome to first and second grade! My name is Jenny Pierce. My husband and I have been teaching here at SCS since 2010. Since graduating from Pensacola Christian College with a master's degree in education, I have just completed my twenty-first year of teaching. My favorite aspect of teaching young children is their natural love for learning about God and His creation. Also, I love to see the "light bulb" moment when students learn to read and fall in love with a good book.
Our classroom always starts with a Bible class full of singing, praying, memorizing God's Word, and applying the Biblical events to our lives. With that spiritual foundation, we move on to learn what the rest of the academic curriculum requires. Students love to participate in flashcard games, board work, and reading circles. A spelling game called Sparkle is a class favorite from year to year. Because of the fun not only in the classroom but also at recess, we end up being one big happy family. Mrs. Pierce's class can usually be heard singing or laughing. We end our day with prayer, thanking God for all His many blessings, answered prayer, and life lessons.
The 2015-2016 school year already looks to be another great year. We will be studying the life of Christ in Bible. The first graders have bigger addition and subtraction problems to look forward to while the second graders are excited about multiplication. We always look forward to learning phonics tools to help us learn to read and spell better. World History will involve a trip around the world learning about the history and cultures of eighteen different places beginning with Mexico. In Science class, we will be investigating the wonders of weather, magnetics, animals, and dirt. I am looking forward to starting our adventures on September 8th!
