Mrs. Kara Fontenot
Hi everyone! My name is Kara Fontenot, and I will be your math teacher! I have 9 years of teaching experience ranging from Pre-K to 4th grade. This is my 2nd year teaching fourth grade math at DeQuincy Elementary. There have been some changes this year, but I am excited for them all. Together we are going to make this school year the best yet.
I will be addressing the required math standards by teaching from the Eureka2 curriculum. We will do work together in class each day and the students will get a homework page after every lesson. Assessments will be given when we reach the end of each topic. I will let you know on Remind when each assessment will be. It is very important that you join my Remind because I will post all the updates for my class there. My class code as well as directions for logging in are in this packet.
Grading will consist of 7 grades. Grades will come from Topic Assessments as well as a weekly Fluency grade. I will post study guides and help for lessons on Canvas for each Topic. The best way to prepare for the weekly grade is to complete homework/classwork, engage in the lesson, ask questions, and be present in class. All Math pages we work on each day as well as their Homework page will be in their BLUE MATH FOLDER. It would be a good idea to check this daily.
I cannot wait to meet each of you, and I am looking forward to an awesome year! If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can message me anytime on Remind.
