3rd & 4th Grade Class


II Timothy 2:15 (NIV) Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

I think it critical to properly prepare students for grading from the first day of school. Goals are made completely clear and expectations established at the very beginning. Materials that are to be learned should be clearly identified and emphasis made to the students that they will be tested on their understanding of the materials.

I tell my students regularly throughout the day that my job is to teach…their job is to learn. To do that they must listen, participate and apply what they hear and see. I ensure they understand they will be measured and assessed, and that I expect their best. When a student is not attentive I will stop the lesson and direct his/her attention back to the lesson at hand. At that time there is a discussion with the whole class as to the importance of attentiveness. They are then reminded of my job to teach and their job to learn. If they are not attentive they will forfeit their opportunity in the learning process; thus, they will not do well on the test that will cover the material at hand. At this time I review with the class Proverbs 10:14, as well as other verses.

Reviewing before a test is essential in their learning process.

A quiz, given within a short period of time after the material to be learned, provides a measurement of immediate understanding. A test given at the end of a section will provide a measure of learning retention over a longer period of time. A final test will give a measure of overall subject retention. A final quarter grade shows the cumulative measure of all of the student’s efforts including classroom participation and interaction, physical work done in the classroom, homework, projects, and testing. A complete picture-not limited to simply test grades.

Ephesians 3:20 (NIV) Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.
