Teacher Scott Becker - Fifth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Thank you for visiting Mr. Becker's Class Webpage. Please refer to this webpage to check your homework assignments that are due, upcoming projects, online textbook access, and other important information relevant to our class!
We are so excited to begin using Microsoft OneNote in our ELA classes! OneNote allows students to access and edit their ELA work from their online ELA binder. Today, your child will be bringing home their log in information on colored paper. Please keep this copy AT HOME for your use. You can also access this information on my teacher page found on the District website. If you have any additional questions, please let me know!
Dear Parents/Guardians,
This week students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-Cís new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. The district will be providing training to all teachers on score interpretation. More information will be forthcoming to parents. I look forward to working with your child this school year.
