    (up to 50 minutes excluding 20 minutes of
    reading).
  • Students are required to keep up with daily class
    work, homework, projects, etc. in class and at
    home.
  • Your child will bring home his/her communication
    folder every Thursday. Please look for graded
    papers as well as notes/communication from
    school.

Work Completion Policy
  • In an effort to prepare students for middle
    school and teach them both responsibility and
    accountability for their work, Bullard Fifth
    Grade Teachers will all be implementing the
    following policy
  • All classwork will be given a due date and
    expected to be turned in on time. Any work not
    completed and turned in by the due date will be
    subject to a 10 point deduction in the grade each
    day it is late, however, no work will be accepted
    more than 4 days after the original due date.

7
Work Completion Policy
  • If a student has an excused absence, then they
    will be given one day per excused day to complete
    and turn in any missed work.
  • In addition to teaching students to complete and
    turn in their work when it is due, we are also
    encouraging students to do their best work the
    first time they submit an assignment therefore,
    we will not be allowing students to re-do any
    assignments for an improved grade.

General Overview of Curriculum
9
Differentiated Math and Reading
  • In our classrooms, we use the guided method when
    teaching math and reading.
  • Students are grouped according to the results of
    tests, quizzes, and mini assessments.

10
  • Students who demonstrate a solid understanding of
    the skill(s) being assessed will be given
    extension tasks. These tasks stretch their
    abilities and allow students to build upon their
    knowledge of the skill(s).

11
  • Students who do not demonstrate an understanding
    of the skill(s) being assessed will be given
    guided practice and tasks that allow them to
    practice the skill(s). These tasks are tailored
    to the needs of those students.

12
  • Guided groups are fluid and change frequently
    according to the students proficiency levels.
