The agenda is an important organizational tool. Your child will be expected to record the main assignments for each subject. The students are required to record their nightly reading in the reading log box. Notes and reminders will be recorded in the last boxes. Students are encouraged to copy items that I record in green on the whiteboard in our classroom.
Learning how to record assignments and write notes to yourself is critical to your child's success in middle school and high school.
I do require parents to sign or initial the assignment notebook daily because it serves as their reading log. I feel that the notebook should become the child's responsibility. If your child has a note from me about his or her conduct, missing work, etc., your child will be expected to show you the note and ask you to sign on that page.
