HW AND WEEKLY UPDATES:
If you are a parent: Please have your child/children check their e-mail for the assignment and ask your child/children to show you his/her/their agenda. Having seen the e-mail and the agenda, there are now two scenarios you may encounter:
1. Both of them match; this is wonderful! Please make sure the assignment is completed tonight.
2. You utter, "Houston, we have a problem." You have just experienced one of the following problems: The agenda is missing, the HW assignment does not match, or the HW assignment is not written in the agenda. Do not panic! Remain calm! All you need to do is kindly persuade the child/children to read the message below. You may want to remind the child/children that it is the student's responsibility to fill out the agenda every day regardless if there is no home work; complete and turn in all assignments on time; double check the weekly e-mail on current assignments. After all parents, you are not in my class!
If you are one of my students: You may be doing the responsible thing and checking to see if you completed the correct page(s) on tonight's homework. I just want to say, "Nice Job!" On the other hand, maybe your parent or guardian has asked to see your agenda and a slight problem occurred. I know you copied the assignment from the homework board into your agenda, but the dog may have devoured your agenda while you were playing Blokus at http://www.blokus.com/ or updating your Shelfari account with more books at http://www.goodreads.com/! For whatever reason, I am glad you are being responsible and checking on your HW! Please keep reading.
We all know reading and writing work together, and most of you have me for both classes. I know you consider yourself the lucky ones, and so do I! For the few students who only have me for one of these classes, do not consider yourself unlucky! You are lucky, because some students don't have me at all! Shocking, I know! Well, enough about me. I know you want to know about the HW.
You can find my HW in two places:
Regularly check your e-mail! I send a Parent and Student Update each week! You can always find the HW in either your child's agenda OR in the weekly update. MAKE SURE THAT YOU CHECK YOUR E-MAIL WEEKLY! [I usually send the e-mail on Wednesday or Thursday of the week.]
Many times, homework is to complete a lesson using www.StudyIsland.com
Also, you will be asked to complete writing assignments that are saved on your School Fusion account. School Fusion is found on the BVMS homepage. You were given your passwords Study Island on slips of paper, and you wrote the information in the agenda on December 25th!
TO SEE YOUR STUDENT'S GRADES, THE STUDENT GRADE BOOK IS LOCATED ON PARENT PORTAL! HAVE THE CHILD SHOW YOU!
Don't forget to use the dictionary or the thesaurus! You can find both resources at http://dictionary.reference.com/! If you need a rhyming word, try http://www.wordcentral.com/!
