Our classroom is in need of some items for the school year. The items are listed below. If you are able to help out our classroom, please let Miss Bennett know which items you can help with, so she can delete them off of the list.
* Gift Cards to Target, Amazon, Walmart or Dollar Tree. * Gift Certificates to TeachersPayTeachers (this can only be bought at teacherspayteachers.com) * iTunes Gift Cards to buy apps for students on iPad * Items for Classroom Economy (can be new or used)
Students will have spelling words to study each week along with reading 20 minutes every night. Students may have other homework here and their but I don't plan on having a huge amount of homework for students to complete.
How can I reach Ms. Robinson?
The absolute best way to reach me is through my school email or DOJO. I check my email regularly throughout the school day and also in the evenings. If you would like to come in to school to meet I would appreciate if we could set up a time either before or after school or during a time when the students are at a special. This way, I can best be prepared to discuss any questions or concerns you may have and use our time wisely.
What is my student's Friday Folder?
Each student in our class has their own mailbox. This is where I will place any graded work or important announcements and forms that require your attention. Each student is responsible for checking their mailbox on Friday so that information gets home to you. Please check your student's take home folder every Friday. There may be times in which an important paper needs to be sent home right away for you to see, these papers will be put in your student's binder.
What is the Classroom Economy?
It is where students earn credits and debits, while maintaining a classroom store. Each week (pay period) students will earn money for their classroom job, completing work, being prepared for the day, along with many other things. Debits are given to students who break the classroom rules in our community of learners.
The money students earn will be used to purchase items from our classroom store. The classroom store is ultimately used to teach economic real world concepts in math, which include decision-making, supply and demand, and spending. Students can, of course, choose to save their money and purchase a more expensive item from the store at a later date. There will be a store at the end of each month.
