Basmati is Updated


Make sure to check out Basmati today.  It's updated with the first Spelling test, everything we've done in History, and most importantly, I've updated Reading and Language Arts.

Keep in mind, Reading and Language Arts are the two classes in which we are piloting Standards-Based Reporting so be sure to check them out and see if you have any questions.  Remember, Basmati doesn't play well with Standards-Based reporting so ignore the overall grade totals and pay attention to the individual skills.  A 3 is what we are aiming for.  A 3 is "meeting expectations", and it means your child is doing everything I've asked them to do.  A 2 means they need a bit more help with some aspect of that learning goal, and a 4 means they have gone beyond what was taught in class in some meaningful way.

I think this might be a bit confusing at first, so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have them.
