Building Improvement Plan & School Performance
Mrs. Tate has taken over almost all of the teaching in our classroom. We are currently co-teaching almost everything...she teaches, I monitor or guide her and the students. Or, we'll tag team and both teach a lesson together.
Math: We are knee deep into fractions with finding greatest common factors, least common multiples, adding fractions, subtracting fractions...fractions, fractions, fractions!!!
Literacy: We're just finishing up our lessons over text structure- looking at how non fiction authors structure or organize their texts.
Writing: We've just started writing introductions to our research report!
Content (Science/Social Studies): We've started a 2 part unit over the solar system. We will test Monday 3/7 over the solar system and shadows.

Online Math Resources
Year after year I always get the burning question "Will I have homework?!"I can not and will not be assigning grades based on work completed at home...nor will I be specifically assigning "homework". I will however, send home activities that you may choose to complete with your student (or an activity that your student can complete independently) as practice. This may include a game of some sort, a math page out of their workbook, a website to visit, or a passage to read.
We do have access to our math curriculium online via the McGraw Hill website: http://connected.mcgraw-hill.com/connected/login.do User names and passwords will sent home at a later time. This website has a virtual copy of math workbooks, tutoring videos, and games and can be utilized at ANY time.
In addition, time should be set aside daily for independent reading, or studying math facts on a daily basis. This does not have to take a long time. Just 10 or 15 minutes a day spent reviewing skills can significantly help your child's performance.
