Week 1 Update
First Week of School
Reading- We will focus on character development through our reading workshop.
Writing- The students will be writing personal narratives that describe the important moments in their lives.
Word Study- We will begin by assessing students knowledge of their no excuse spelling words.
I do wanted to let you know that the wifi they are connecting to is the school's, which means there are multiple modes of protection. We, as teachers, also heavily monitor the students action on the computers. The students could also lose their internet privileges if they misuse it.
September book orders will be due by September 23rd. Click here to order online.
All homework is to be turned in on time for full credit. For each day it is late it will go down a letter grade. After 5 days any homework turned in will be awarded no more than half credit. After we have finished a unit any homework that has not been turned in will result in a zero.
If a student does not have a homework assignment completed they will be asked to fill out a Late Assignment Slip and turn this in until the assignment is completed. This is a way for the student to take ownership in his or her work while developing a plan on how to complete the missing work.
