    FAQs

    How do I view my son/daughter’s grades?

    Skyward will be updated regularly so that you can stay informed about student progress.  If you do not have Skyward access to view your son/daughter’s grades, please contact Sally Riddle and she will get you connected.  Email - sally.riddle@tumwater.k12.wa.us

     

    How can I help my son/daughter with homework?

    If you are finding that your son/daughter is having trouble with homework:

    • Parents and students can access the Illustrative Math materials, including the workbooks and family materials at https://im.openupresources.org
    • Have your son/daughter read over the lesson summary.  Each lesson has a summary that summarizes what was learned that day. 
    • Have your son/daughter “try” their best by attempting to solve all problems. The next day, encourage your son/daughter to ask questions about homework.  I set aside a few minutes each day to go over requested homework problems.  
    • Please encourage your son/daughter to do their homework every night. Homework and daily class work is considered a ‘no count’ because students have the opportunity to work together and get help from adults. However, homework completion is necessary for class and test success. Completion is recorded in Skyward and homework is given daily.

     

    How can I help my son/daughter be prepared for upcoming assessments?

    I will always communicate with parents before an upcoming assessment. In addition, we spend time in class the day before each assessment reviewing the concepts that will be on the assessment.  Please encourage or help your son/daughter to study using their review packet that we complete in class together.  It may also be helpful to review lesson summaries, daily class work/notes, fire-ups and homework problems from the unit.

     

    What if my son/daughter wants to re-take an assessment?

    Traditional re-takes will not be provided, however, standards will be spiraled into future unit assessments to provide students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of past standards.  For example, let’s say the students just completed the Unit 1 assessment, which was their first opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the Unit 1 standards.  At the end of Unit 2 assessment, they will receive 3-5 questions similar to the questions found in the Unit 1 assessment.  This is their second opportunity to show mastery of the Unit 1 standards. 

     

    What are Fire-ups?

    Fire-ups are generally 1 -2 problems and students get about 5-10 minutes to complete this. Students are encouraged to use their math books to help them. Please remind your son/daughter to take their time and do their best on these. If they understood the lesson from the previous day, these Fire-ups should not be challenging.

     

    What do students do when they are absent?

    • Visit TMS’s webpage, click ‘teachers’ and then ‘Santee’. My webpage provides an up to date list of homework assignments. 
    • When your son/daughter returns from an absence, they need to ask for missed Fire-ups.
    • Encourage your son/daughter to find a friend that will allow them to borrow class notes to write into their book. 
    • Last, they need to check in absent work (homework and fire-ups) with me during OPPs so that I can score the assignments.
    • Students are expected to stay in during OPPs until all work is completed from all classes.

     

    How do I get to the class webpage?

    To access the class webpage go to http://tms.tumwater.k12.wa.us, click on Teacher Webpages and Santee. 

     

    Are there additional FREE math resources that my son/daughter can access from home?

    Khan Academy just released practice problems, quizzes and tests practice that align with the Illustrative Math materials!  This is great information for the students to review to make sure they have a full understanding of the math lessons.  https://www.khanacademy.org/math/illustrative-math

     

    Also, I would love to see students working on i-Ready math lessons 2-3 times a week at home (10-15 minutes a day).  Each student has been assigned individually designed lessons that help them with growth areas in math.  This math program is linked to the students’ google accounts and it is very easy for them to access anywhere.
