my goals
My Goals

  • To provide a supportive and fun classroom environment.
  • To help your student make new friends and discover new interests.

    • Work Hard, Always
    • Treat others as you want to be treated (Golden Rule)
    • Be respectful of all people
    • Be Wrong LOUD

a note about math
A note about Math:
  • Timed tests in Mr. Field’s class
      • Climbing the tree, moving our Monkeys
      • Test value is 50 pts.
      • Move at your own pace
      • Why is it important?
  • I will assign roughly 60 minutes of homework every night. This includes 20 minutes of reading. I will endeavor to keep homework in this time frame. If it is taking your child longer we can work together to find a solution.
  • XtraMath, allowed as a math assignment starting next week, Study Island assignments will still be due on Friday
  • Study Island assignments
    • Reading and Math every week, the assignment is set and active Monday and will lock on Friday night at midnight
    • Exception for shortened weeks, assignments will stay active till Saturday at Midnight.
  • Planner will be used to record homework assignments and projects. I require that students show parents their planners every night and get a signature.
  • The reason behind this is to maintain communication between us and keep parents aware of what we are doing.
book log calendar
Book Log/Calendar
  • Nightly record for assigned 20 minutes of Reading. I ask that this is initialed by parents and it is worth a homework point towards the reading grade. Log must be initialized to receive the points.
    • (1 point for every 20 minutes assigned.

Weekends are worth 3 points.)

  • Students may read anything; a book, magazine article, newspaper, comic book, etc…
  • I will check this every day along with the Planner—my hope is that the students will fill out the logs independently, asking for parents to initial.
make up work
Make-Up Work
  • If a student is absent from school, they will have the same number of days to make up work as they missed.
  • I will send home a “While you were away…” paper with the missing assignments listed. (haven’t started with the early absences)
  • There will be periodic projects assigned throughout the school year. These will contain cross curricular exercises and will be due on a specific date. Late projects will be accepted but there will be points subtracted. Any questions regarding projects, please contact me.
  • School starts at 8:35 A.M.
  • I take attendance at 8:50 A.M., per office request. However anyone coming in the room after 8:50 is considered tardy. Due to the amount of work we need to accomplish in the third grade, every moment is precious.
