Nathaniel had one to do...There was no paper describing the assignment from the teacher.

That is how my sister handles power points in her 4th grade classroom, they are done at school with her help. She also has a blog which details if they are expected to do anything at home and what it should be.
I am so ready for 5th grade to be over so I can get away from this teacher.

my thoughts exactly. Thank goodness we have it but I am sure there are children who don't. It is a problem often for us if it isn't given to Nathaniel on a piece of paper. Copying from the board or taking notes as it is dictated is really hard for him to do .

My ds9 has had lots of PPTs to do in the last few years, but they are almost always done at school (usually, any ones done at home are optional- like extra credit for a book report, or one way to do an assignment out of several options). I agree with the PP who said, 'what about kids who don't have PPT?'

my question is what if the kid doesn't have access to powerpoint at home??? We don't we just have word and excel. I have it at work but its a no no for him to come in an use it.

But yah next time if there is no directions I would call the teacher for more info. In my case 99% of the time it we would be an issue were she dictated or wrote them on board and Liam didn't gt them on paper

Yes, math is the same way for us. I know his teacher is tired of hearing from me, she has all but told me that. Well, actually she kinda has told me that in a round about way. I can't wait to get past this year b/c his teacher and I do not have a good relationship. She hates to put extra of herself into anything and loathes the IEP.

It does seem like there should have been some written guidelines given. Maybe you could tell the teacher he was a little confused when it came time to do it and ask if she could send something home for the parents so they know how to guide their kids. Or at least if she could describe what she was looking for to you (maybe she'll get the hint?).

I feel that way too with Macy's math a lot of time. There are a million and one ways to solve a problem, but I don't know how the teacher wants her to solve it. Some guidance would be nice.
