I was at my happy place this weekend. Can you tell from the background where it was? We are in the home stretch. Here are the updates for the week:

What is Going in Curriculum?

Math (My math class only)

  • Monday we have part 1 of the math SOL which is the computation part. We will begin around 8:30 and go until the students finish.
  • Tuesday will be a review day. We will go over part 2 of the release test which was done in class. We will also review any areas of difficulty from this second half of the test.
  • Wednesday we have part 2 of the math SOL which is the longer part, but there is less computation. We will begin at 8:30 and test until everyone is done.
  • After SOL tests are completed, we will be doing some math challenges and puzzles.
