Behavior: My biggest reminder to students is to keep your hands to yourself. We will also talk a lot throughout the year about using kind words to everybody! Stay in touch on DOJO to check out how your student is doing throughout the day!
Homework: Math homework will be sent home every Monday. It is due the following Friday! It should be 5 to 10 or so problems like we are working on in class. Students should be able to complete it by themselves.
Late Work/Make-up Work: Late Work: If a student turns in an assignment that is late, they will have 10% taken off the final grade. If it is over a week late, it will have 20% taken off of the final grade. Make-Up Work: If a student is absent, I will give them their make-up assignment or assignments on the date of their return. They can come in at recess and work on it, or they can take it home for homework. After assigned, it is due by the end of the following day.
Class Work: After each lesson, I try to give students some time to complete some independent work. I usually give them about 10 to 15 minutes to do so, which is plenty of time for the amount of work they are doing. If they do not complete it during that time, they may come in at recess to finish it, or take it home for homework. If it is not turned in before the late bell the following morning, it will be considered as late work.
