English Language Arts--Mrs. Swisher
This week, we have continued to work on our novel study over the book, Wringer. Many students are enjoying the book so much, that they are reading ahead and some have even finished the book! It is such a great thing! We will focus on a variety of grammar activities and higher-level questions while studying the book, and we hope to finish the novel shortly after break.
Please make sure that your child is reading at least 10-15 minutes per night, and also encourage he/she to complete her/his SSR summary at home, if they are not completing them at school.
We have been taking the i-ready test to see if you child has increased their proficiency with mathematics over the first semester. Many of my students increased by 2 grade levels, however, there are a few that went down with their scores. The administration is going to look at these score very critically. I encourage your child to do their best in my class and to complete all assignments. Please check PowerSchool, and I am sending home a progress report today. We will complete the i-ready testing and then focus on making up work this week so that your child is very successful. Thank you for all your support!
