9.30.2018 Thank you for all who signed up for beginning of year conferences. It’s not too late to sign up for one if you would like to meet with me.
This week we start our “Thursday Folders”! On Thursday your child will bring home his/her Thursday Folder (along with the “Daily Folder”). You will notice that work in the Thursday folder will not have grades, although it will have a lot of notes. Even the Spelling tests will have a fraction including total points and number of points earned (we adults often like to turn into percentages, but please don’t.) Please take the time to sit with your child, review the notes on his/her work, and talk to him/her about why mistakes were made, questions he/she may want to ask, and how work can be better done the following week. Folders are not due back until the following Monday, which means it is fine to take the weekend to review it.
We will be having our first math assessment on Friday. Your child will be filling in a “review sheet” on Tuesday and then we will go over the answers as a class. If your child has incorrect answers or does not answer some questions before our class review, he/she will be asked to write in correct answers using colored pencil. Your child will bring home this review sheet on Tuesday afternoon. Please take the time to go over it with your child, talk to him/her about why mistakes were made, questions he/she may want to ask, and copy mistaken problems so he/she may solve them again.
Don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to turn in Magazine order for the PTA, and book orders are due on Friday.
