Welcome to Back To School Night Parents! Tonight we will be going over expectations, homework, rules, and policies for this upcoming year -We will be implementing a new literacy program called Expeditionary Learning. This literacy program integrates multiple disciplines such as Science and Social Studies. -Our first unit is about Human Rights. We have begun learning how to be “close readers.” We are currently analyzing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and dissecting key words to help us get a deeper meaning of a text. Expeditionary Learning Individual Behavior Plan 1. Listen carefully and follow all directions. 2. Raise your hand and wait patiently to speak or get out of your seat. 3. Keep hands, feet and hurtful words to yourself. 4. Respect all your classmates and your teachers. 5. Do the right thing (even when no one's watching). 6. Complete all work with your best effort. -Students will learn several new reading strategies and how to analyze different texts with our new literacy program. -In order to ensure that your child excels, please encourage your child to read at home each day for at least 30 minutes. -Each day, a parent/guardian needs to sign your child’s reading log. Teacher Introduction Rules and Policies 5th Grade Math Topics Miss Menzoni -Eighth year teaching -Experiences in 4th, 5th, and 8th grade -Graduated from the University of Delaware Behavior Thermometer: “On Fire Behavior” -The success of the system hinges on the consistency of its use and your interest and reinforcement at home. -The purpose of the behavior modification plan is to: -Help maintain a classroom atmosphere conducive to learning. -Help the students learn to take responsibility for their own behavior. -Allow for daily home/school communication about each student’s classroom behavior. Behavior BINGO -A hundreds chart is displayed in both classrooms. -Students are given BINGO “chips” when positive behavior is achieved. (IE: compliments from other teachers, completing homework, transitioning in the halls quietly, etc.) -When there are 10 “chips” in a row, students will receive a class reward (ice pops, prize, or class treat). http://www.roberttreatacademy.org/intranet -Singapore students have been top performers on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). -The research base to guide Common Core State Standards (CCSS) cited Singapore’s pedagogy as on of the key research models. -Helps build solid conceptual understanding through a focus on problem solving. -Students learn the “why” and “how” through instruction, hands-on activities, and problem solving. Reading -Homework will be given each night and is expected to be completed and turned in the following day. -All homework needs to be checked and the agenda should be signed by a parent each night. -If a student does not complete their homework, they will receive a zero for that assignment. Parents will be notified with a note in the agenda. -Each Wednesday a folder will come home with important information from the office. Please review the contents, sign, and send back the Wednesday folder the next school day. -Each student has a clothespin labeled with his/her name, and begins the day clipped to the center (green) of the chart labeled ‘Behavior Thermometer.’ -During the course of the day, students have the opportunity to move their clothespin up or down the chart according to their behavioral choices. -Positive behavior choices allows the students to move his/her clothespin up one level; conversely, inappropriate behavior choices causes the clothespin to move down one level. -Students will receive points depending on the color they are on at the end of the day. -At the end of the week, if they are above 50 points, students will receive a reward.
