GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

September 15-19 – Full Speed Ahead!

on September 14, 2014

Hello parents!

We begin our second week of school tomorrow. As the staff meets on Monday after school, don’t be surprised to find additional updates on Monday evening. My apologies that this post has not been made on the strived-for Friday.

Notes About Homework

I was asked some questions regarding homework this week and I thought I would clarify for you all what is expected.

Typically, Math and Penmanship should be completed in school. However, the students will write down the assigned pages in their agenda and, if they are not completed during class time, then they will have to be done at home. Any math corrections should be completed as well. Those are the questions that have been circled. I will try to have everyone’s math book corrected by the end of the day.

Language is done in class. Sometimes I will assign questions that we did not get to for homework for grade four Language. Grade three students should be able to completely finish their Language page in the time allotted.

Reading homework will be assigned every night except for Fridays. Students are expected to read fifteen minutes a night, once to themselves and once to a parent. It is important that they read out loud to someone to aid fluency and comprehension.

Spelling homework is to be completed a minimum of three times a week. That means students should have practiced their list three times AT LEAST. If your child struggles with spelling, the more practice the better.

Our Schedule

I was also asked for a copy of our daily schedule, which I will post below. Hopefully it formats properly! As you can see, it is a very tight schedule!

Parents can request a nice neat hard copy of the schedule as well.
