Homework is a way of assessing a student’s understanding of
concepts learned in class, which is why it will be given on a daily basis.
Sometimes they will have Words Their Way homework over the weekend depending on
if they did not finish it in class or not. Late or incomplete assignments will
be noted and must be completed the following night in order to receive credit.
If a concept is unclear, or a student does not understand their homework,
please email or attach a note to that particular assignment.
Reading is a crucial component of a learning life. Research
shows that children need at least one hour a day with eyes on print. It should
become a life habit, and students are expected to read 25-30 minutes at home
every night. Students will be using their reading logs to chart their sessions.
When a student is done reading they should write a reflection in their reading
notebook. This notebook should be filled with ideas, questions, wonderings,
theories, summaries, and much more.
Snack will be around 9:50. Keep it healthy and small.
Students will have one week prior notice to begin studying
for assessments. Quizzes will be given sporadically but will also be announced
a couple of days in advance. All graded quizzes and tests will be sent home in
their assessment folder on Friday’s and should be signed and returned back to
school on Monday.
All birthday celebrations are welcome! Please send me an
email or note to coordinate a healthy birthday snack for your child to bring in
on his/her special day.
Please review the Bogert Student Handbook so you can become
familiar with school-wide policies.
