Classroom Procedures

Here you will find helpful information about our classroom. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 

Grading:

As we get into our routine, you should see schoolwork posted to your child's Seesaw account and schoolwork papers come home in your child's folder throughout the week. 

 

Homework:

Math Homelinks will come home every night. Math Homelinks should be a 5-10 minute review of the skills we have learned and practiced in class. Homelinks should be turned in the following day. Should you have any questions about what the answer should be, please reference the Unit Family Letter that comes home at the beginning of each unit. The answers to the Homelinks can be found on the last page.

A Refrigerator Copy for ELA will be sent via email with the weekly newsletter on Fridays. Please use this as a reference for our weekly skills, spelling words, and stories that we will be working on the following week. We will be practicing spelling words in class throughout the week. We encourage students to practice spelling words and read each night. Students will be assessed on their spelling words on most Fridays. 

For questions on what homework assignments your child has for the week, please reference the Homework and Assignments tab located on the right sidebar of our class webpage.

 

Classroom Management:

In our class, we will be using a CHAMPS chart. Chilren are expected to be respectful of the teacher, and other students. We will begin the year using a reward systems to reward appropritate behavior. If the students are following expectations or going above and beyond in the classroom they will sign the CHAMPS chart. Once the chart is filled I will be doing a  raffle for the children to have a chance to win a prize. We will also be doing a whole class reward system that allows the students to work towards a big class reward. 

 

Birthday Treats and Parties:

Birthdays will be celebrated at school and in our classroom. Summer birthdays will be celebrated in our classroom in May. District Policy does not allow treats to be sent to school for a child's birthday. 

 

Transportation: 

Please notify the office by 3pm if there are any changes in the way your child will be going home from school on any day.  Without verbal instruction from you by 3pm, your child will go home the usual way.  You may also send in a note with your child or send me an email in the morning regarding a transportation change.
