4 Common & Summative Assessments Common Assessments are given to gauge what the students already know. These assessments guide the instruction. A common assessment may be given at the beginning of a new concept or skill, much like a pre test. However, common assessments may also be given mid way through the chapter/unit as a formative measure. This method aids the teacher in identifying those students who need further practice, students who need to be enriched and everyone in between.

5 Grades -Students will not receive a zero. -If work is not turned in, the student will stay in for study hall during recess. -Grades are summative, so there will be less numeric grades per six weeks.

6 Student Data Binders All students will have a binder where they record their own progress toward learning goals. Assessments and work samples will be cumulatively placed in the data binders and students will compare their own work samples to measure progress and explain their learning. Students and teachers will use the binder to conference and monitor progress. It will be an important way to help students know what their strengths and weaknesses are so, in turn, we are able to help them set personal goals for improvement. The binder will collect data about Reading, Math and Science. Starting in the second six weeks, these binders will come home twice per six weeks so you will be informed about your child’s progress.

7 Target Time This time is designated to review and/or enrich concepts. Some students need extra reinforcement, others need enrichment. Groups will be formed based on results of common assessments.

8 Attendance Being present in EVERY class, in its entirety, is essential to your child’s learning.

9 Conduct Rewards/ Consequences Tokens TokensClipboard Each class has a conduct chart that is passed as the class rotates. If your child is unable to follow the classroom expectations we have gone over, s/he will receive a mark on the clipboard. For each mark there will be a consequence. We use these conduct marks to determine the Mighty Dogs. This is our method of rewarding good behavior. Each child is assigned a number and has token labeled accordingly. Tokens are put into a container for an individual or for the whole class. These are then randomly drawn and rewards are given.

10 Recess/Study Hall/Detention Study Hall: If your child was unable to finish his/her class work and just needed a little more time, s/he may finish it during the recess/study hall time. This is not a punishment, but an opportunity to complete the assignment.
