Scholastic Book orders
Our class code to begin online ordering is: GVDNB
Students are strongly encouraged to bring their own bottle of water to stay hydrated for PE, especially during these hot, humid days. They should dress comfortably and need to wear shoes.
Students learn a variety of songs to sing as well as learn to play the recorder. Students should come prepared every week with their recorder and music folder.
Students can also visit the library on their own time before school between 7:30-7:50, and at recess if it is open.
Students should stay within their AR range for the quarter. Each quarter students will take another STAR test to determine their next AR range. Student ranges can go up, down or stay the same from one quarter to the next. There is the possibility that a student's range can move up before the next quarter if he/she demonstrates consistent test scores of 90%-100% and has read a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction, from the low end to the high end of their range.
Students should aim to attain at least 80% to demonstrate understanding of the books they read independently.
Your child is welcome to read other material that may not be AR or outside of their range once they have met their AR goal for the month or outside of the 20 minutes of reading.
AR books may be ones from our school library, classroom library, public library, or even books from home. To find the level of a particular book from the public library or from home, visit www.arbookfind.com and type in the title of the book where prompted. You can also search for books within a set range from this site in the "advance search" option. The link can be found on our class page under "Links-Language Arts."
When a student completes the assignment, he/she should come to ask for the answer key to check their work. Once it has been scored, I checked their score and check off the appropriate boxes, date and sign that it was been taken care of. At the end of each week students should get their parent's initial to indicate their parents are aware of the assignments that have not been completed on time. The parent initials does not necessarily mean the child completed the assignment. Students who have incomplete work at the end of the week are encouraged to complete it over the weekend.
