March Madness--is it the weather?
Be proud of your child's diligence!
The actual assessment is scheduled for Thursday this week, March 20th to be followed by the short paper portion (essay) on Friday March 21st. Please support your child's success by ensuring proper rest precedes the test. We know this is just one snapshot of their writing ability and try not to stress over it. We have pondered each of the prompt possibilities by discussing and writing interesting introductions or by gathering vivid vocabulary choices we may include if given a particular prompt. The students have done a commendable job. Please PRAISE their efforts!
Mrs. Morris' portaportal site with guest access, kmorris2, has several grammar games or practice sites the students may visit to brush up on portions of grammar they may feel are rusty. Most of the games are just fun ways to stay tuned into proper grammar.
The students and I are looking forward to a "grammar-free" day sometime next week. It is hard to imagine how we may be speaking by the end of that day:)
