Classroom Textbook Textbooks Our science

students are encouraged to take good notes and
keep their binders very organized. The binder
will serve as a textbook when it is time to
prepare for quizzes and tests. All main
textbooks (language arts, math, and social
studies) are expected to be covered with paper or
cloth covers. Do not use contact paper or sticky
book covering materials. Although they say that

Friday Folder Your childs class work will be
brought home each Friday in their take home
folder. There are two sides to the folder Keep
at Home and Sign and Return. Please go through
each paper with your child, reviewing and
questioning them about their work and what
concepts we are/were exploring in class. If
students received intervention on a paper it
might need signed and returned. Sometimes papers
are sent home to be corrected and returned.
Please check carefully and return any papers that
need returned. Some papers will be kept in a
L.A. portfolio to show growth over time. These
items will be shared at conference and again at
the end of the year! This year I will be keeping
math assignments in the math journal book as much
as possible. I will collect the book, mark the
grade, and hand it back to your child. The math
journal will come home on Friday so that you can
see your childs progress and review any concepts
that need reviewed. Please keep the papers in
the journal as the concepts repeat and these
papers may be helpful to figuring out future
assignments and when studying for tests.
