News from Mr. Lambert's 5th Grade Class

Week of 01.19 - .1.22.15

This week we wind down our first standards cycle of the Second Semester. This means 8-Step assessments will be happening this week, assessing how well we have mastered our first set of focus standards, (see below). We're also testing using the NWEA formative assessment as well, which will help us tailor instruction in the classroom, by giving us an idea where students are excelling, and where we need further help.


Please watch planners this week. I have an idea of what we will get to this week, but with so much testing going on, our schedule will be a bit more fluid than usual! Also, make sure to check Power School, as well as check out your student's Missing Assignment Report, to make sure you are up to date on your student's progress in the 3rd Quarter.
