Hello parents, students, and care givers.  Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year.  I am looking forward to a great year and looking forward to meeting you all on Back to School Night which is on Thursday September 6th.  Please sign on to your child's google classroom weekly to view what we are doing.  If you want to be added as a guardian you can sign up on BTSN or send me an email and I can add you.  I will be distributing some of our documents that way.  No need for you to print anything out.  Please have your child do their work in a math journal (a spiral notebook or composition book - your choice).

Dear Parents, if you wish to purchase supplies for our class, we can always use pencils and tissues. That would be awesome! 

I will also be posting videos for lessons on google classroom.

          Strategies for Success

    The best way to learn is to correct your own mistakes.  After I pass back a test or quiz, I have students copy down the answers for the problems that they got wrong.  Then for homework they do the work necessary to understand their mistakes.  They are also expected to write a sentence for each problem that they got wrong and explain what they did wrong.  Then parents are to sign the test or quiz.  If a student needs help making corrections they can come in to work with me at lunch or after school.  They may also ask questions in class.   Please encourage your child to make the necessary corrections to help them to understand the material so that we can move forward to more difficult concepts.
There is a Google doc titled "Tips for being successful in math".  I hope that you can find it useful!
