Math and Reading Workshops
  • The intent is to meet the individual

  • Groups are determined by data collected through
    various assessments and classroom work.
  • Groups work on specific sets of skills in which
    students are having difficulties.
  • Groups change throughout the year based on needs
    and new data collected.

Staying Organized
  • Student Binder
  • Your childs binder will contain the following
    planner, notes/handouts/study guides for each
    subject, in-class assignments, and the daily
  • Planner/Assignment Book
  • This will contain the objectives covered for the
    day and will be filled out completely for you to
    review and sign. Students are to bring back
    their planner to school the following day.

Daily Assignments
  • 5th graders are expected to read 10-15 minutes
    every night.
  • 5th grade students are expected to have, on
    average, 50 minutes of homework/class
    assignments each night per district guidelines.
  • Monday-Thursday Daily homework for reading and
    math, Daily Math homework page (5 problems),
    and any in-class assignments that the student
    needs to have completed for class the next day.
  • Friday Most assessments are given on this day.
    No homework and few in-class assignments are
    given on Fridays ?.

Daily Assignments
  • Any in-class assignment that is not finished
    at school will go home for completion and will be
    due the following day. If an assignment is not
    completed the following day, the student will
    highlight it in his/her planner. 10 will be
    deducted from their grade once it is completed
    and turned in to me.
  • Students will have the chance to complete any
    unfinished work on Friday in the Opportunity
    Room for 20 minutes. Students that have turned
    in all homework/assignments will participate in
    our Fun Friday time ?. Any assignment not
    received by the end of the quarter will result in
    a 0 in the gradebook.

CARE cards
  • Our class expectation is that every day, each
    person demonstrates Productivity Effort
    Responsibility and Kindness. These align with
    our CARE goals for the school.
  • Students have a punch card at their desk. They
    receive punches for demonstrating these
    expectations. When they have 20 punches, they
    choose a reward from the list of choices the
    class developed together.
  • The class has a punch card, too ?! When the
    class receives compliments from other adults in
    the building, they receive a punch. 20 punches
    a class reward!
  • Emphasis is on personal accountability as well as

Celebrating Your Childs Birthday
  • Please feel free to send treats to school for
    your childs birthday. Please send treats that
    can be cleaned up easily and do not require
    cutting (if they do, please send the proper
    utensils). For example Cupcakes, Cookies, or
    Ice Cream Bars.
  • Birthdays are celebrated at different times
    throughout the day so it is best to send the
    treats to school in the morning.
  • Please do not have your child pass out
    invitations to his/her birthday party, unless
    every child in the class is invited. Feelings
    can be hurt.

Odds and Ends
  • Field Tripswe may need parent chaperones to help
    supervise students. No siblings are allowed to
    accompany the class. You will not be grouped
    with your child.
  • Lunch- If you choose to eat lunch with your
    child, you may bring lunch for the two of you,
    but not other students.

Ways to Communicate
  • Note in the Planner
