Family
Philosophy
I believe...
I don't come to work every day, I come to school (and I love it!)
Forming relationships with kids is the most important thing to me.
Every child can learn and grow.
Respect is given and received.
Expectations are set high in my room, and students will reach them with hard work and effort!
My students are the future, and I take that very seriously!
The National Educator's Association recommends 10 minutes of homework per grade (i.e 1st grade=10 min., 5th grade=50 min.)
Too much homework has negative results on elementary school students
Alternative homework provides:
Choice for students
Positive reinforcement; no punishments for incomplete work
Discovery and extension of learning rather than 'busy work'
Studies show that 20 minutes of reading per night drastically improves literacy skills!
Student book bags/reading logs:
-Each night that your child reads, color or parent initial a picture. For every 5 nights, students pick sticker to decorate book bag!
Positive Behavior & Good Manners
-Class Dojo
-Class Coupons
-Brag Bracelets
-Daily Jobs
-K Pals
-Reading Loft
-Kiss Your Brain

Quest Folders
Quest folders will be sent home weekly with mail (school forms, classwork, etc.)
Once mail is taken home, please return empty folder to Mrs. Page so we can start stuffing it with more great work again!

Every Child a Writer
Handwriting without
Tears
We will do fun writing projects that relate to units we are learning about to integrate subjects and show learning in different ways!

Every Child a writer is designed to reach each student individually through the small groups. There are still high expectations while differentiating for all levels. Students will have targets to meet each day for their writing, and by showing these targets in their own writing, they will continue on to the next step of ECAW.

Class Dojo
Positive Behavior/Classroom
Management
-Students can earn Positive points/feedback for following class and school rules
-Students get Needs Work feedback (worth 0 points) for negative behaviors
-All feedback can be seen on your child's personal Class Dojo account
25 points= 1 stone on Dojo (points erased each stone)
5 stones= Class coupon
20 stones= Dojo Wall of Fame & New Dojo Avatar!
Foundational handwriting program that uses explicit, multisensory instruction to teach good habits.
15 minutes of instruction that is developmental (easiest skills first, build on prior knowledge).
Ex. Capitals are all taught first due to their simplicity; all made of 4 shapes
One large part of HWT is quality pencil grip, and all these habits are taught correctly now to ensure good handwriting later as well.
I believe:
Learning should take place first and foremost in the classroom, with homework being a way to practice and enhance learning.
Un-homework gives choices that are engaging and rigorous, which promote learning despite not being countless worksheets.
As a 5th grade teacher, I have seen homework years down the road; let them be little!
