Week of 11/18
This week, students will be tested on what they have learned so far this year in Math and ELA. The scores will not go towards classroom grades, but will be used to monitor each student's progress and for recommendations for future Math and ELA classes. If your child is absent during testing, they will be required to make it up upon their return. Please make sure that your child has a working calculator (batteries charged, etc.), and that they bring it to school on the day of testing. There is a portion of the test that allows a calculator. The ELA Benchmark will be on Wednesday, January 20th & the Math Benchmark will be on Thursday, January 21st. Both will start at 8:15 am.
In Language Arts, we have been working on our literature circle jobs and project. Students also have some work to complete over the 4 day weekend. This includes copying down some notes, reading their novels, working on the passage of the week, and studying flipbook terms to prepare for the ELA Case 21 benchmark. The benchmark test is on Wednesday of next week.
