Hello Parents! We have now arrived at the one month mark! What a wonderful month it has been. I have implemented a few procedures that you may not yet be aware of… On your child’s table is a weekly calendar with important dates, assignments written in for them. Students receive this calendar on the Friday before. THEY are responsible to write in all of their daily assignments. They are also expected to write in their agendas. Please look at these on a daily basis. It is a valuable time management tool.
Assignments/Homework – Meeting deadlines is an important life skill. Please use agendas/weekly desk calendar to assist in time management. Any assignment can be emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I can print it out for your child.
Math: It’s okay to make a mistake. Go back, correct it and learn from it… Students are to hand in math assignments. Once corrected, they are expected to complete the corrections and hand it back in for marks. I will remark the assignment and change their grade. This is a great way to learn key concepts.
Students receive more than enough class time to complete work. If they are not able to complete assignments in class, it will be homework.
Students have a weekly dictée. They are given the text Monday and will be tested Friday. This also includes questions on the text and an analysis of the text in a notebook must be handed in on Fridays as well.
Each month, students are required to complete an English book report, a French book report and a presentation. These assignments are independently done. Students may use class time if they have some free time outside of regular lessons.
Current events are given every two weeks. They have one due this Friday, Oct. 3.
All students will be expected to use their agendas and homework binders. All homework should be placed in the student’s homework binder. Students must have these communication and organization resources in class on a daily basis.
You can also find updates on class info, homework, etc. on our “Classroom and Homework Blog page”. This can be found at http://www.mmedryburgh.wordpress.com .
