The more your child is exposed to language, the easier it will be to incorporate new skills in reading and writing across the curriculum. Therefore, your child’s most important homework is to READ EVERY DAY for at least 30 minutes! This is a vital part of our 100 Book Challenge program.

A great place for parent communication is our
Facebook
group at CCCS fifth grade.

The best way to contact me is

sspeers@paradisecccs.org
, face to face communication is even better
(before or after school, privately please
)

If you’re not sure about something, ask me. And if you have concerns
please let me know sooner than later –I want to know—Really!





TECHNOLOGY
Technology is imperative to our students' academic success. In Fifth grade, we use a wide array of technology to aid students' academic achievement. As you know, our nation's formal assessments has become totally computerized. It is very important that our students are well-versed in the use of technology.
Please encourage
them to utilize all of the resources listed our school web page
. Student can access content via personal technical devices
(computers, iPads, kindles).

Each student has their own google login and passwords. Before students can "go online" we will be learning about internet safety, evaluating sources, and social media etiquette. Our school server will allow them to send emails to anyone, but
they can only receive emails from CCCS students and staff
.


November
14-18
Fifth Grade Curriculum
Writing will be used in all content areas including math, reading, science and social studies. We will focus on narrative, argumentative, and informational writing and continue to develop sentence structure & grammar

Homework assigned

and is recorded on assignment sheet
It is an extension of the content covered in class, and an opportunity for you to be involved with your child’s academics

Please initial the form each night after it has been
checked for correctness and quality

Okay to help (unless specified)

Reading (monitored through AR, book reports, & conferences)

If there is a
question
..(email/Facebook classmate, or wait until morning)....Look online!!!

Please check and review all sections of the homework folder each evening, so that important notices can be read and necessary items can be signed.

Students who turn in 100% of their weekly assignments will participate in Fun Friday.
Failure to complete homework assignments will result in a lower homework grade.

Please try not to miss any more school than is absolutely necessary. Worksheets cannot replace instruction. However, please do not send your child to school sick. (1 independent study per/year)

We want healthy students who are ready to learn, and who share pencils and ideas… not germs!

Lets Make it Happen
Class rule “
Be Considerate

Learning can only take place in an
environment of mutual respect
Our class rule teaches students to think about how their choices and actions affect others
Everyone is valued, and
high expectations
are norm with the goal of “
daily success for all!

I work hard to create a
safe, clam

learning environment
Cooperative Learning...taught explicitly!
Love-and-Logic (mutual respect)



Warning—An opportunity to self-correct (we all make mistakes)
Time
Behavior Plan & Meeting w/parents
 


Individual Recognition verbally, and/or Bird Bucks (our $$$ system)
Table points for effective choices within the small-group
Class Stars earn whole-class rewards such as ice-cream or game-days
Good old-fashion verbal praise, and lots of smiles!!!

Consequences for Poor Choices...
Rewards for Good Choices...
...Thank you!
*Please
sign in
at the office & initial class schedule

*Please
turn off your cell phones
(even texting is very distracting)

* If you need to find someone to cover your scheduled shift, please
post on our class Facebook page ASAP
(this also alerts me)

*Please encourage students to
do as much of their work as possible independently
. (Many of our kids have gotten very good at getting others to do their work for them! Challenges make us stronger:)

*Remember to give lots of
positive, specific praise
. Also, the best way to discourage inappropriate behavior is to
compliment appropriate behavior. Correct carefully!

*
Have fun!
! Be enthusiastic and enjoy the children. Positive energy is contagious. Children know when you want to be there, and when you don’t…So please stay home when you are ill.
We want happy, healthy volunteers and kids

"Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor!"
