 Upcoming Tests/Units: (dates below are tentative; please see student Agenda for most updated dates once written)


UPCOMING EVENTS 



Daily Homework
Daily homework includes:
*Reading for at least 20 minutes (This should be reading for enjoyment and from a variety of sources... parent-approved fiction, nonfiction, magazines, online, etc. It is important for students to read independently and with others, silently and aloud.  It is essential that students are talking with others about what they are reading.)
*Practice basic multiplication facts, through x12 facts (It is essential that students practice these facts for fast recall and accuracy.  Students begin making multiplication flashcards the first week of school that will come home and return to school daily.  These cards can be used for daily homework practice as well as any other activities including parent-approved multiplication games that can be googled online.  Students who have mastered multiplication may continue with basic division facts. This homework time is also helpful for students needing additional support with basic addition and subtraction facts.
 *Students should be sharing at home the content they have learned in math, social studies, and science.  These notebooks may go home at any time, and must be returned daily to school. (Social Studies and Science are taught in alternating units. Daily review at home will support students to be prepared to build upon their learning the next day.  Seeing and reviewing at home what the student has practiced at school will also provide examples of what the student may need additional help with at home. 

*Additional projects/activities that are assigned will be written by students on the student Agenda.  This includes test dates.


Data Binders
The binder that holds the student Agenda is the Data Binder.  This binder, along with the homework folder, comes to school and home everyday.  Your student needs to kindly ask you to please sign the Agenda daily, as it lists current homework/projects. They also need to check the homework folder daily for any homework activities due, information, or graded activities sent home.  

Inside of the binder is a collection of fun data about the student.
Unit Test and Assessment grades are posted in the online gradebook. Graded Math, Social Studies and Science tests will come home after being reviewed in class.  For any online County Reading and Math Assessments which cannot come home, grades will be posted in the online gradebook.
