Fact Practice


Students will write in their planners what homework they have each night.  Please initial nightly that you see the planner, and know they completed their homework.  If students habitually do not complete their assignments, we will set up a more specific process for them.

•Students are required to complete 40 minutes of Iready Reading and IReady Math each week.   Sometimes they are able to get this work done in class.  If not, they need to finish it for homework.

•Students will have math and literacy homework if they do not complete their assignments in class.

•Students are required to read 15 pages each day and record it on their log.  They may have time in class to get this done.

See Saw

This year we're going to use a new tool to share what we're learning in class called Seesaw. Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class.

Click on to sign up -- it takes just 30 seconds.

Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Family app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web.


P.S. If you have more than one child using Seesaw, or want to add a new class/school year for your child, follow the link in this email, then click 'Sign in' tab at the top. You do not need to create a new account
