I have received several conference note request forms back, but I am still missing some. If you have a preference on the day or time that I schedule your child's conference, please try to return that form as soon as possible. I will be coordinating with siblings teachers next week. A note will come home with your specific day and time in the next couple of weeks once I have everything finalized on my end.
Just a quick reminder, there is no school on Monday, January 21, 2019. This is a Professional Development/Work Day for teachers.
Students were very excited to see Traushaun back in our classroom this week! He has a Peer Helper block of time that he is able to join us. I am excited to have him back to work with your children. The kids are excited to have him back so he can go outside and play with them at recess!!!
We have started our mid-year assessments. This was our math week and I am pleased with the results so far. There is always room for improvement and I will be making a few changes during our math time to work on areas that students are still struggling with. Yesterday we took our math application test. This is the one that deals with everyday math concepts - telling time, counting money, reading graphs, measuring things, skip counting, and much more! Today we took the computation part of the test. Students have a variety of addition and subtraction problems to solve in 3 minutes. I believe I told many of you at conferences, mid-year is the time of year that we see scores increase the most! I look forward to sharing these scores with you at conference time!
