Your child will be assessed in many ways this year. Your child is informally assessed on a daily basis through verbal and written activities. Children will also be assessed to check their level of understanding of what was learned in each chapter using formal tests in Reading, Social Studies, Math and Science.
These tests give us information about your child’s current reading ability and comprehension of subject material so that we can work on targeted areas of weakness and strengths.
On even numbered Fridays, your child may bring home their test folder. In their agenda, they will write: ‘Please sign test folder and return on Monday’. You will review their tests, and sign to acknowledge that you saw each one. The test folder gets sent back on Monday.
Your child will have math and reading homework every night from Monday – Thursday. Every now and then, they may bring home workbook pages to study vocabulary for science and social studies. Important upcoming dates will be written into their agenda as well. Please initial the bottom of the agenda to show that you are aware of what homework your child has completed.
Homework is also updated weekly on my website.
Monday: Art 11::02-11:42
Tuesday: P.E. 9:40-10:20
Wednesday: Library 10:21-11:01
Thursday: P.E. 9:40-10:20
Friday: Music 2:30-3:10
The best way to reach me is through our class Dojo text messaging system, which you will receive a code for at Meet the Teacher Night, or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I check e-mail throughout the day when the students are at a special, or after school.
However, if it is something that the school needs to know about immediately, such as a dismissal change, please call the school at 687-8350. This is also the best way to contact me if you need to speak directly with me regarding your child. I will do my best to call you back during a time that the students are at a special.
I look forward to a wonderful year of educating your child.
