Start Practicing Your Typing at Home!

We will be typing a lot this year! To help you become more proficient in typing, you may want to start practicing at home. If you have access to a computer at home, there are many online (free) programs that help you become familiar with the keys on a keyboard. You will be allowed to type all of your Writing and Reading assignments that are completed in the classroom and at home (if you have access).

Remember: Practice may not make us perfect, but it sure does help us get better!!

Welcome!

Welcome to a new school year! We are gearing up for a fun-filled year of learning! My name is Mrs. Saunders. I will be teaching Reading and Virginia Studies this year; Mrs. Gibson will be teaching Math and Science. We will be learning a lot about our wonderful state of Virginia and growing as lifelong readers. I am really excited about our year that is ahead of us! I have very high expectations for all of my students. As stated under the blog’s title, “Your ATTITUDE determines your ALTITUDE“, which means if you believe that you will do great things, you will! Each student will be encouraged to be the best that they can be each and every day!

Homework: Every night, students will have homework. Students will write their homework assignment in their agendas. Students are expected to read over their notes every night (to refresh their brains of material covered in class that day); you never know when a “pop quiz” will appear.

Homework will be graded this year (20% of the grade). Students receive a grade for completion, not accuracy. Each night’s homework is worth 25 points, which will earn a score of 100 points for the week (Monday-Thursday). Homework will be checked daily.

Supplies: Every student will be responsible for having the proper supplies each day for class. Students are to have:
1 pack of loose leaf paper (wide ruled)
2 pocket folders
4 marble composition books
1 pencil BOX (supplies replenished as needed)
Each BOX should include:
1 pair of scissors (labeled with name)
pencils for the week
2 glue sticks
2 highlighters
2 red pens
Colored pencils
Backpack (preferably not on wheels)

Discipline: We will follow the positive reinforcement model of discipline in our classroom. Students will be encouraged to make good decisions throughout the day.

In the event that a student chooses to disobey or be defiant, a phone call/email will be made to the parent notifying him/her of the incident. After the parent has been notified and the problem reoccurs, a conduct notice will be sent home. The third offense will result in after school detention (3:15-4:00), the fourth offense will result in a referral.
