What is Caught'Ya?

   Caught’Ya notebooks will be sent home in the Thursday folder.  Your child needs this notebook every day in order to complete his/her morning work.  Even if you can’t return the Thursday folder until Monday, please send the Caught’Ya notebook back to school with your child on Friday.  Caught’Ya is a weekly writing grade.  It is a program designed to reinforce grammar.  Each morning there is a sentence on the board (written incorrectly) that students write in the correct way.   When it is time for the students to check their work, each correction that should have been made, but was not, is written in and circled.  Those corrections are worth ten points.  Any correction the student made that was not needed is “slashed” and those count off one point.  I choose one sentence per week to grade.
