Mrs. van Hemert


Welcome to my classroom website!

I am also connected on Remind and have found that it is very helpful for quick communication about your child. Try messaging me! If you are not connected via Remind and would like to be, let me know and I will send you the information.

I will be adding some new information and resources, but would appreciate any suggestions along the way. If you think of any content that would be helpful to you let me know.

There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. I have added some links for games and songs we have enjoyed in class. On the resources page are links that will help you navigate the world of Special Education. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, to connect with parents, but also a learning tool and resource.



Please read to and with your child!

Practice counting and identifying numbers

Talk about letters, letter sounds and how sounds go together to form words

Think about rhyming words

Notice and create patterns

Make something! Practice cutting and gluing

Practice letter formation, writing and drawing

Keep work pleasant and fun


Practice self-care routines

(That is a lot! Take a break and relax!)

Individualized student homework may be sent home. Please contact me with any questions. It should be "just right" for your child, not too easy and not too difficult. 


In this section you will find information on Special Education. I have added two resources. One is a list of terms used in Special Education and explanations. The other is the Autism Initiative Handbook that will help you understand the ins and out of the Verbal Behavior program that we will be doing in our classroom. Later I would like to add learning resources for you to use at home!
