A few things to keep in mind...
A sneak peak at the remainder of this school year:
1. Math-focus is on area
2. Reading-classroom magazines and Journey's Lessons 26-30 (as time allows)
3. Writing-integrated in all other subject areas
4. Social Studies- 2nd: Communities Project 3rd: Native Americans (culture/effects/changes)
5. Science-Plant Life (as time allows)
Please be sure to have your child practice reading and math through the websites listed on my Links page at all time for review and fluency.
Homework is a daily practice. Please ensure your child completes it correctly and review any uncertain concepts with him/her. Although it is my true effort to teach your child the necessary standards, it is essential that skills are reviewed at home. It's also an opportunity for you, as a parent, to communicate with clarity about his/her day at school.
Assessment Areas in which grades are originated from are...
Math (Classroom performance and understanding, assessments)
Reading (Comprehension, Vocabulary, Phonics, Grammar, Spelling)
Science (participation, understanding, assessments)
Social Studies (Participation, understanding, assessments, culminating projects)
