GradingStudents are evaluated daily, through not only assignments and tests but teacher observation and self-evaluation.Grades will be issued based on the Madison School District guidelines:
4= Exceeds Standard
3= GRADE LEVEL EXPECTATION
2= Progress toward Meeting Standard
1= Limited Progress toward Meeting the Standard
Tests will be graded and sent home on Fridays in "Friday Folders".
All tests must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to me on Monday of the following week. Thanks! :)
Homework is an essential tool as it not only reviews and reinforces concepts but teaches accountability and responsibility.
Students are expected to read independently for 30 minutes a night.
Additionally, students will have math homework from our Math in Focus curriculum on Monday-Thursday.
To encourage independence and responsibility, students will use their Spelling Menu (to be discussed in class) to complete 1 activity per week.
