Parent Conferences: As our day is filled with many activities and LOTS of learning it is very important that you schedule conferences as opposed to just “popping in” to talk. Before school and after 3:15, as well as during rotation time, which is my planning, is the best time to reach me for a conference. Please call ahead to schedule conference at 783-7359 or send in a note.
Children begin at lower levels than they are tested because there is much more to reading than calling words.
REMEMBER TO READ ALOUD EVERYDAY TO YOUR CHILD
WORKING WITH WORDS WRITING
Children write everyday.
Writing is about thinking and composing.
Learning how to put ideas on paper and making meaning with what we write.
Spelling and conventions are taught but not during composing time.
Spelling is developmental and children learn spelling over time.
We encourage children to write the sounds they hear in words when they do not know the correct spelling.
We do not spell for them because that just makes them dependent on adults for spelling and inhibits their spelling development.
o Progress reports are issued in the middle of each 9 weeks
o We do not grade everything the students do-usually only if we have taught it, reviewed it, and practiced it already so we can tell the students progress and identify strengths and weaknesses. (Some papers may just have a check, sticker or smiley.) However, we do look over all of their work as a guide to the direction that our teaching should be headed.
o Our grading system consists of number grades. 90-100=A,
80-89=B, 70-79=C, below 70=F.
o Graded papers will come home Wednesday or Thursday afternoons. Look for my comments to help you understand the grade or the activity. Please sign the papers and send them back to school the next day. Please return all test that are attached. As always, stay in contact with me if there are questions or concerns about grades, etc.
