By working together, we can create a successful learning environment for students at school and at home. Here are some highlights of what's happening in our classroom.
HomeworkYour student is responsible for reading at least 60 minutes each week and completing a reading log with the title of the book(s) and minutes read each day. This log is checked each week for a reading grade. Parents will be asked to check the log and sign it once a month. A daily math assignment may be sent home to reinforce class concepts and students are strongly encouraged to practice math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Students are also responsible for reviewing spelling words and vocabulary weekly. I review daily homework, but often do not grade it. I do record an effort grade which reflects your child’s willingness to turn homework in completed and on time.
GradesIt is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive grades in skill areas of each subject. The grades will be: outstanding (O); satisfactory (S); progressing toward proficiency (P); or needs improvement (N) in skill areas of each subject. Here is the scoring reference:
