Mr. Hawkins' Class !
information and such
In short I expect students to work with me on THEIR education. I want to do whats right by them and you. Please know that!!! I am ALWAYS available to help or answer questions. My ability to do what you expect of me is tied directly into our ability to communicate. PLEASE feel free to contact me at any time. The class dojo app is the very best way. If you need me to call you send me a note with your number and this will speed up the process!
This link will take you to a page where you can locate all the standards I am required to teach. The list is extensive and somewhat daunting.
Things that would help me with your child!!!!
Yet, many of my students do not know simple multiplication facts! I do not have time to teach what is considered a 3rd grade skill and the kids really struggle with what I am required to teach. There are many free games and programs online.
Many of my kids are not reading on a 5th grade level! Reading effects every subject I teach! Nightly reading should be required in all houses in my opinion. It will make a hug difference in your child's academic life.... I promise.
Ask your kid what they are learning....If they are eager to tell you then we are doing great! I want them to feel invested in their work!
AND LASTLY always check with me before you question any decision I have made. I am certainly not immune to mistakes. Heck, I probably answer 600 hundred questions a day and make almost as many decisions daily. I mess but always try to rectify! Often the story from school is a tad different than what the kids say! You probably know how this works. We have all been kids! I need communication to happen before any judgement so we can take care of any issue and continue with what is needed for your kid! I am here for your kid.
