Back to School

WELCOME TO MR. SIMONSON'S CLASS

  On this website you will be able to find our daily schedule, what we are learning at the moment, and a little about my teaching philosophy.  

Book Fair this Week

I sent home a form on the book fair which talks about Ewallet.  On the Young Scholars Facebook page there is a page talking more about how to pay for the books.  Additionally, you can use cash.  If you are sending your child in with cash, please have it in a bag with their name on it.    

SCHEDULE

Follow this link to find my classroom schedule.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZbxysFHb2vJpTu4JMQdYqs_M6VUDfHgrIGi_BU9Gfe0/edit?usp=sharing

I have seen struggles with Google Links in the past, if this does not work I will contact IT to see why it is not working.  

I have included this to make sure everyone is able to understand what we do each day and how the classroom is set-up.

Welcome to 3rd grade and grading system

Grades can be upsetting to some students which is why it is always important to value trying their best over their actual score.  That is what I pay attention to the most.  

Grading Scale

In 3rd grade we start to grade based on letter grades.  Most of the students will get a decent grade if they just do the work and give it their best effort.  

Grading scale

A 90-100

B 80-89

C 70-79

D 60-69

F 0-59

Homework and Blue Folder

If I am sending home homework, it should be done to their fullest.  Most students have been finishing their and not having to take home their folder.  However, I do send home other important information in the folder.  For example every Friday your child will have their brand new spelling list.
