Welcome to Class 3-303
Hello Parents! I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. We look forward to working with you throughout the school year. It's been a pleasure to meet you all as we passed our first parent meet and greet. We truly enjoy working with each student and we can't wait to see how much they will grow academically.
Homework is an essential for the students' academic growth. It is a practice of the skills we have done in class, please make sure students are completing homework on a daily basis. On Fridays, We will not give students homework unless we have a long break. Please make sure students are reading on a daily basis, as it will help develop students' to reading abilities to a higher level.
Communication is a KEY for the success of our students. We believe it is a way we can work TOGETHER to help promote your children to greatness. Students are bringing home many important documents on a daily basis. Each student has a parent communication folder, please use this folder as a way to communicate with me. You may also communicate with us through EMAIL: CRivas5@10x094.org. or FNovaj@schools.nyc.gov Feel free to use any of the listed above to communicate any concerns or questions you may have! Again, thank you so much for being the biggest supporters.

Dear Parents and Students,
As you may know NYC has shut down all schools due to the CoVid 19 virus. To ensure that students are still learning each student will receive a packet for math and ELA. In the packets that you will receive you will find several math lessons that you can use so that we do not fall behind this year. Each lesson has modeled examples for problems, which explain the concepts and how to solve the problems. It also includes fluency drills to practice with your child!
STUDENTS: Please use the samples to do the work independently and then review answers.
PARENTS: You should have your child figure out why their answer was incorrect and correct their answers.
You can use embarc.online to review MATH HW answers for each problem. We are currently in module 5 and will be starting with Lessons 21. Please ensure that students are doing one lesson per day!! ( I have included 4 lessons and will start a new module via google classroom) In the Math packet you will also see NEW YORK Math state exam problems that students should be practicing! Parents this is a perfect opportunity to engage in mathematical conversation with the way your child has answered the problem. We will put assignments on google classroom to not have any confusion on which lessons and questions to do.
ELA: you will see different passages and questions that students must answer. When answering multiple choice problems students should use a process of elimination. For short response questions, students are expected to use RACE to ensure they are including details from the text as evidence. Please check via google classroom which passages students need to complete on assigned dates!
R- restate the question: turn the question into a statement
A- answer the question: Answer in your own words
C- Cite evidence: Use evidence from the text to support your answer. Use evidence sentence starters and quotes ( according to the text…. The author states….. From the reading I know…)
E- explain your evidence: In your own words explain the evidence you included, what does it mean and how does it connect to the answer. Use sentence starters ( This means…. This shows…)
VIA google classroom: We will be uploading work that will be completed by due date!
Please do 30 minutes of I-Ready in math EACH day! Please do 30 minutes of I-Ready in ELA EACH day! WE WILL BE CHECKING I-READY USAGE DAILY!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us via class dojo or google classroom. We hope that you and your family will remain well and look forward to seeing you once we are back!

It is our belief that the interaction between teachers and parents strengthen the support of the student. Every student will receive a Parent Communication Folder which will serve as a tool for us to communicate. Students are expected to bring it home every day and return with it to school in the morning. This is crucial in order for us to be able to communicate freely about your child’s learning adventure. Please use this regularly to communicate as well as my email address and the school’s main phone number. The school’s phone number is 718-405-6345. We will do our best to provide a prompt response.
In addition, We will be assigning homework every night. I will be providing a homework calendar for writing so that you may stay aware of all the assignments. The calendar will be uploaded on our class page for students who may not know what the assignment is. Students will copy his in their Students will be expected to read every day and complete their reading logs. We are asking for your assistance to oversee that your child is doing homework on a regular basis. Homework is a tool that is used for students to reinforce the skills they are learning at school and to help them grow. It is crucial that students are doing their homework, for it is a method that we use to know if our students understand the new information being taught.
We are looking forward to working with you to make this a successful year for your child.
