Kindergarten ~ Ms Deanna Forry

Kindergarten 2018-2019

Welcome to the Kindergarten homepage!

I am Ms Deanna Forry.  I grew up in the Springfield area and attended St. Raphael School and Springfield High School.  I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Augustana College.  I taught multiple grades, K-3rd, at Minnesinnakhgang Charter School on the Ojibway Reservation for 3 years and worked in special education at McGregor Elementary School.  I look forward to being back in my hometown area and teaching your children.


  • Kindergarten students will have a reading goal each month to work toward. I recommend about 10 minutes per night, most nights! If the student reaches their monthly goal, they will get a certificate and a little prize from Mrs. Steffl!
  • Kindergarten students will also be expected to work on their "star words" (high frequency words) which will be affixed in their folder with velcro.  I will test them for mastery several times a week! Flashcards will be sent home with each new batch.
  • Math worksheets/activities will also be sent home about once a week. (Sometimes more or less than once a week depending on what we are working on.) These need to be returned the next day.
  • Books that we have made in class will also be sent home for sharing with families.  They are to be read and returned as soon as possible.
