In first grade, students are graded on a 1-2-3 scale based on their mastery of a given skill. The skills are outlined on the First Grade Report Card. Your child's classroom work will be graded using this scale.
1- Does Not Demonstrate – requires
consistent support; performing below grade level
2- Demonstrates Sometimes – able to complete some work independently; may need
help from teacher or peers
3- Demonstrates Consistently – mastery
at an independent level; able to complete all work independently
If a checkmark or star is on classroom work, it means that I was looking for participation.
2nd Semester Grading (January-May)
This chart gives an example of how I explained it to them and I will create one to hang up for them to see. Any assignments below a 70 will be available for them to redo; look through their Thursday folders and return any papers the following Friday. I will average the two grades together and send it back.
