Parent night 2011 Parent night 2011 Presentation Transcript

  • Welcome Grade 4 Families!
    • Grade four is an important year of growth and development for students. The following are classroom expectations and procedures that will help them have a successful year.
  • Grade 4 Goals
    • To give students the academic tools and behavioural strategies they need to succeed in Grade 5 and beyond.
    • To provide a learning environment that is supportive of the growth of all classmates.
    • To have fun while they learn.
    • To make new friends and discover new interests.
    • We will cover all the subjects and topics that are outlined in the provincial curriculum.
    • Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Health, Art, Physical Education, and French are all covered subjects.
  • Teachers
    • Miss Frick and Mrs. Ball – Language Arts, Social, Science, Health, Arts Education (drama and music), Character Education and Physical Education
    • Miss Riley – French
    • Mrs Cloutier – Visual Arts
  • Miss Frick
    • Fourth year education student at the University of Regina.
    • I will be here teaching for four months (Sept – Dec).
    • My role as an intern is to gradually pick up the full course load of the Provincially outlined subjects and topics within Grade 4.
    • We are very lucky to have Mrs. Karen Krieger, working in our classroom at various times during the six day cycle.
    • Mrs. Gavel will be working with small groups of students during guided reading times in our room.
  • Class Management
    • In our classroom we use a traffic light to help monitor behaviour and attitudes. Students start each day at green and may change throughout the day.
    • Green- on task, focused and doing what they should be doing.
    • Yellow- a warning that a
    • behaviour needs to change
    • Red- behaviour needs to
    • change immediately. There
    • will be time to talk to the teacher and a note will be sent home.
  • Caught in the Act
    • Caught in the Act is a behavioural plan that encourages and rewards students for seeing the positive in themselves and their peers.
    • “ Coupons” are award to students names who are drawn at the end of each week.
  • Homework
    • Students will have homework some nights. This will teach them responsibility and time management.
    • Marks are lost if work is handed in late.
  • Home Reading: Read Across Canada
    • Students are expected to read for 15 minutes daily and log these minutes. The sheets will be returned to school weekly and tallied monthly. Each province has been designated a specific number of minutes on the map . Once all provinces have been “traveled” through, a prize will be rewarded.
  • Agendas
    • Agendas should come to school every morning and taken home every evening after school.
    • Parents are asked to initial the agendas every day (even if there is not a note in the agenda that day).
    • Students are responsible for showing their parents their agenda so they can see any notes or test dates.
    • Please feel free to write any notes you need to send me in the agenda (I will check them every morning to see if there is any).
    • At school we will enter in our agenda any important dates as soon as we know of them (test dates, assignment due dates, etc.).
    • See agenda announcements on our
    • classroom blog .
  • Reading Fluency and Comprehension
    • Our classroom will be working toward the school division goal of increasing reading fluency in comprehension in students by:
    • Continuing Guided Reading (Levelled group reading) on Days 1, 3 and 5.
    • A balanced literacy approach of shared reading, partner reading, independent reading, guided reading, writing time and spelling time.
    • Using the Daily 3 and the Daily CAFÉ. Parent pipeline letters will be email.
  • Families as Partners in Education
    • Education is most successful when the school and home can work together jointly. The following things are important to ensuring the success of your child.
    • Ensure your child gets enough sleep nightly
    • Send healthy “brain food” as snack
    • Encourage your child to be responsible for their agenda, home reading and other homework.
    • Inform me as soon as you know your child will not be present at school.
    • Contact me if you or your child has any questions or concerns about school
    • As a team, we will ensure the
    • success of your child!
  • Let’s Have a Great Year!
