In your child’s book bag, you will find their math folder. Let me explain how this will work:
In the folder, you will find the math lessons we have worked on for the current chapter (chapter 3). Since math homework will not reflect newly taught skills, but previous learned skills, it’s important that you know what we’re doing in class. When the folder goes home, your child is expected to share with you what they learned that day. Please sign or initial the lesson page (It will say in the top right corner lesson 3.1; 3.2; 3.3). This lets me know that you have looked through your child’s lessons and allows you to stay current on what we’re doing in class. Students will get a new math folder with every new concept (1 folder for multiplication, 1 for division, 1 for fractions, etc.). That way, all information is sorted and easy to reference.
Also, I have students who need reteaching moments in addition, subtraction, and/or multiplication. Some students are ready for more challenging activities. Therefore, depending on what your child needs, you will find on the left side of the folder
reteach packet-provides mini reteach lesson in the top box and practice problems.
enrich packet-provides your child with critical thinking questions and problems to answer
Students who complete these extension activities will get a choice of receiving a blue ticket or Husky Paw (let them explain what they’re for:). Unless I assign these pages for homework, THEY ARE NOT HOMEWORK. 🙂 These are extensions.
Therefore, if you find your child is not able to share with you what they’re learning in class, have them try out a reteach page. Students can work on these assignments on the weekends as well.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Please give your child a hug for all of their hard work they have been doing thus far. I’m so proud of the BEST class.
