Mr. Hart's Class ~ We completed module 2 on Wednesday. I have graded the tests and they will be coming home with your kids today. Please sign and return the test so I know that you have seen your child's grade. Like module 1 I will allow the student to make corrections (ON A SEPaRATE PIECE OF PAPER) to get half of thier points back. Students that have an A do not need to do corrections, all other students must complete corrections. Today we began module 3. This is a module on multiplication and division.and will take quite a while to complete. I anticipate this taking us until at least January to finish. Please continue to have your kids work on their basic facts.
PAWS ~ We dabbled with the first PAWS task. You'll see pieces of the modeled assignment in your child's Friday Folder. Most importantly, check out the feedback sheet. The middle column lists the standards or components of opinion writing that I'll be checking for. The entire process looks like this.....kids plan, kids draft in google, then print, kids look to edit & revise using a protocol from me, print again so I can edit and give suggestions. Finally, kids will go back into that google doc and make changes. Some kids can make their way through this in a week, but most take a little longer. We'll start out with a task every other week. Most of the work should be done in class as they will be given about 15 minutes a day to work. It's absolutely fine for kids to access google through BravesLink at home and work too!
Mid-Unit Assessment ~ The kids worked so hard on this task! Look for it to come home early next week.
