How the students have free time?

games at the baseball field. Some kids play basketball or soccer. Others just
walk around and visit.

How much homework will I have?
evening you will be expected to read 20 minutes in "Just
Right" books. You will also have a Journal
assignment every night plus Spelling homework on Monday,
Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. You will be given time during class
to do most of your homework. So if you use your time
wisely, you won't have much homework at night.
How will my child be evaluated?
evaluation tools are selected on the basis of the
appropriateness for the concept that is taught. Teacher
observation, oral reports, projects or reports, rubrics,
conferences with students, open-ended question
responses, class participation, and performance are
examples of evaluation tools that may be used. Reading
assessments will be given at the end of
each unit of study. Re-teaching and re-testing
strategies are used to remediate and strengthen
