Chaperones & Drivers

NEW VOLUNTEER RULES, per the District Office:
 
If you just want to volunteer in the classroom, or chaperone or drive on a field trip, EVEN if you're only driving or chaperoning your own child, you do have to get these done:
 
1) (For drivers and classroom volunteers): get tested for TB from your doctor, and turn in doctor's form to front office.
 
2) (For drivers and classroom volunteers): get fingerprinted and cleared at the District Office (call them to make an appointment.)
 
3) (For drivers only) give the front office a copy of your vehicle insurance (showing current coverage and dates), and a copy of your driver's license.
 
4) (For drivers only) fill out Volunteer Driver Forms, from Valencia's front office. You MUST DO THIS EACH NEW YEAR, even if last year your forms had the same information on them. It's district policy to make sure everyone stays safe.
 
Thanks!

      Students are starting a new essay, an Opinion/Persuasive essay on "Should Candy be Banned from Schools?". To access their documents, students can go on any computer to "Google Classroom" and search for Mrs. Wing's classroom at Valencia Elementary school, and type in the class code "2ddvsn". They can edit and read their results, from any computer, even at home! In math, we're in Unit 4, about measurement of volume, mass, distance, and time. "Challenge Group" kids in math will be doing something new: they'll get a list of special, challenging projects, will choose several of them, and do a presentation of one of them, to the whole class, at the end of the unit. (Kids in the "Challenge Group" get into the group by getting 100% on the unit pre-test, showing that they have mastered the material.) Remember, if students want to redo missed questions on math tests, all they have to do is show their work, give the new answer, and turn it in, and I will re-grade the test and give them the higher grade. In social science we've been using our cursive practice and maps of Santa Cruz County to learn about different parts and the history of Santa Cruz County. In science, we've been having lots of fun in Mystery Science learning about fossils, animals, and plant and animal adaptations. In reading, kids are settling into their RTI classes, and learning how to tell opinions from facts. Students are also learning about point of view, how their point of view differs from that of characters in books, and the difference between first person narrator and third person narrator. In PE we've been having fun learning different dances, like line and circle dances, and learning safe stretches and warm-ups.

 

         We are still getting to know each other and learning about working as a class and community by doing "Class Challenges", where students are given real-life tasks to do that teach them about teamwork. The rest of the year, kids will have daily homework, which is a Reading Log, Fluency Page, and math practice. Each day, students are also to read anything, for at least 30 minutes, and note down the title and time on their log. Each day, students are also to read aloud their Fluency Page (a short 1-page story) to an adult, who notes how many words the child has read in a minute, and writes it in a box at the top of the Fluency Page. Not this week, but next week, we will also be adding on daily math practice, which students should do each day for 10 - 30 minutes. This would be practicing basic addition facts of numbers 1 - 10 up to the sum of 20, basic subtraction facts of 20 - numbers 1-19, multiplication facts of numbers 1 - 12, and later on, division facts of numbers 1 - 20. These pieces of homework are to improve retention of math basic facts, to improve reading, and to improve smoothness and comprehension in reading aloud (fluency). The goal in the Fluency Pages is NOT to simply speed-read, but also to read with expression and appropriate emphasis, according to the punctuation.

   

         Keep an eye on this page for each week's homework, announcements, and other information this year!

 

         WISH LIST: If you can/want to donate, we ALWAYS need lots of:

          * Gift cards to Target or Walgreens for school supplies

          * Microwave popcorn or Goldfish crackers, and stickers, bouncy balls, small toys and fancy pencils, for rewards

          * Spiral bound notebooks

          * Kleenex, napkins, hand sanitizer, paper towels (for our messes and dribbly noses)

          * Any kind of paper: colored, lined, unlined, scratch, all sizes

          * Any kind of typical school supplies, like gluesticks, pencils, lined paper, color pencils, stickers

Classroom Management:

 

Classroom Rules:

  1. Treat others like you want to be treated. (Respect them and their things).
  2. Keep your hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
  3. Listen when it’s other’s turn to talk.

 

Consequences:

  1. Verbal reminder
  2. Warning (move clip down)
  3. Lose recess: Trash duty/walk the track during recess, fill out Behavior Form, get it signed by parent, return it the next day
  4. Lose another recess: Trash duty/walk the track for another recess, sit out of next fun activity
  5. Principal’s office and/or call parents

 

Positive Rewards:

  1. Lots of positive attention!
  2. “Caught Being Good” tickets, exchanged for prizes at end-of-the-month class auction.
  3. Valencia Victories tickets (possibility of a prize each Friday)
  4. Team points. When a team gets 20 points, they get microwave popcorn or crackers.
  5. Homework Heroes: students get a prize on Friday if they turn in all their homework for the week (Reading Log, Fluency Page, and signed Homework Agenda.) If homework is complete and signed, they get to choose a prize from the small prize box.

Other Rules:

Water: students are allowed and encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle to sip on during class.  They may bring water, but not any other liquid, as those are difficult to clean if they spill.

Homework:

We have homework every day except for Friday. Every day, children should practice out loud their fluency page, and have someone record how many words they read in 1 minute. They also read for at least 30 minutes daily (they fill out a portion of the Reading Log, which is due, completed and signed, each Friday). Occasionally we have math, social science, writing, or science homework. Every day the students write the required homework on their "Homework Agenda", and I sign it to make sure they copy it correctly, so this is where you and students can go to see what homework is required. In addition, every Monday I give out a Homework Schedule giving the homework and notices about the week. Also, the whole week's homework is listed on this webpage. Each Friday, we collect the week's Reading Logs, Fluency Pages, and Homework Schedule, and kids who completed them and got them signed get a small prize.

 

Thank you, and looking forward to a great year!
