HomeworkNuts and BoltsFor homework students will be expected to read each night for a minimum of 20 minutes and practice weekly spelling words. Homework sheets go home on Fridays and are due back on the following Friday. at the bottom of each homework sheet is a For Your Information section where I will write a brief newsletter telling you what we've been learning as well as any upcoming events. Math homework will also be attached. Please ensure that each paper has your child's name on it.The students will be bringing home a "take home folder" each day which may contain their work and notes from school. This is an excellent means for parent/teacher communication. Please check it daily and take out work that is meant for home.GradesIt is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive letter grades in the subject area this year and also an outstanding (O); satisfactory (S); progressing (P); or needs improvement (N) in skill areas of each subject.Here is a brief overview of what your child will be learning:MathThe District adopted math curriculum is Math Expression which incorporates the best practices of both traditional and reform mathematics. your child will learn math by working with objects, making drawings (proof pictures), listening to and working with other children and sharing ways to solve problems, writing and solving problems connecting to daily life and getting plenty of practice with concrete math concepts such as adding and subtracting.
