Homework InformationAny homework or important notes will be in your child's homework folder. Your child should have this folder everyday. If they are not bringing this home, ask them about it!
Any homework in addition to the below listed, will be a result of an absence, lack of time management during class time, or a special project assigned with ample time to be completed.ReadingStudents are required to read from their library books at least 15 minutes each evening. Your child will have a quarterly AR Goal that is determined by their reading level. I will take 2 grades on their AR points each quarter. The first grade is determined from the percentage of their AR goal achieved. The second grade is a comprehension grade which is obtained from their average grade on AR tests that quarter. You can keep track of their AR progress by initialing their "AR Progress Report" in their Thursday folder each week.A STAR test has been given to determine the reading level in which your child should be checking out books. This test will be given often throughout the year to monitor each student's progress.Please offer a reminder to your child to bring their book back daily.Additionally, a Reading/Language Arts paper will be sent home every Thursday.Math
A very short math page will be given on Mondays and Tuesdays to serve as review. This paper should only take 10-20 minutes to complete.Spelling
Spelling lists will be passed out each Monday. You can also find these lists on my website if you need extra copies. Please help your child study these Monday through Thursday. Tests will be given on Friday unless we are not in school on that day.Late Work Policy
Any paper that is not turned in on time will have 10 points deducted from the final grade. If the paper is more than a week late it will be give an automatic 50%. If the paper is never received that paper will be counted as a zero.
Behavior ManagementMy classroom management plan includes support of school-wide rules for behavior in the classroom, hallways, cafeteria, playground, and while attending P.E., Music, and Art. All children are expected to make good choices at school.
Our goal is self-discipline!
We will work in teams throughout the year to earn rewards for exceptional behavior. Each student can earn points for their team for following the eight expectations listed below and for various good choices (i.e. lining up quietly, participation, sharing, etc.) At the end of each month, the team with the most points will earn a reward.
Students will be given a behavior calendar sheet monthly, which will be inside the Thursday folder and sent home weekly for you to sign. The behavior sheet needs to stay in the Thursday folder and sent back to school on Fridays. As additional motivation, students with no warnings (or those who earn and 'E' grade) for the week will get a treat on Fridays!
Eight Expectations For All Students
• We will value one another as unique and special individuals.
• We will not laugh at or make fun of a person’s mistakes nor use sarcasm or putdowns.
• We will use good manners, saying "please," "thank you," and "excuse me" and allow others to go first.
• We will cheer each other to success.
• We will help one another whenever possible.
• We will recognize every effort and applaud it.
