    Please do NOT send an email as I may not receive
    it in time.

Daily Class Work
  • We will do a lot of work together, especially at
    the beginning of the year.
  • Letter grades will not appear on graded class
    work. Students will receive stars, stamps,
    stickers, happy faces, etc.
  • Some work may be marked as a fraction. For
    example 9/10.
  • Please go over completed papers at home to see if
    your child understands what was missed.

6
Homework
  • Homework will be sent home as a packet on Mondays
    (or the first school day of each week). This
    packet is due on Friday.
  • Additional math homework will be sent home
    regularly and MUST BE COMPLETED AND RETURNED THE
    NEXT SCHOOL DAY.
  • Homework should remain in the blue take-home
    folder.
  • This blue folder should be wherever your child
    is. If he/she is at school, the folder should be
    at school. If he/she is at home, the folder
    should be at home.

    throughout the week. Students will also meet in
    reading groups or book clubs during the week to
    discuss books together.

  • 12 words per week
  • These will follow the Journeys curriculum
    program that we adopted for Language Arts last

    words will be given each week as well.
  • We will also be looking for application in
    students writing.

Writers Workshop
  • Students will write everyday. Most of this work
    will be done in our Writers Notebooks and
    Journals so you will not see it coming home on a
    regular basis.
  • Our focus will be listening for the sounds in
    each word, utilizing the word wall, leaving a
    finger space between words, using capitals and
    punctuation, and writing complete sentences.
  • We highly encourage students to choose their
    topics, etc. CHOICE IS VOICE!

Handwriting

  • Proper letter formation
  • Top down no push ups!
  • Use the lines (they are different)
  • Our main goal is legibility and no frustration

    which is a spiral based program.
  • Students will also focus on comprehending word
    problems throughout the year.

    an expectation that they will be practiced at
    home each night as well.
