This week, we will be focusing on academic skills that will pertain specifically to the GA Milestones exam. I will administer a number of pre-tests to determine their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, I will be teaching them how to deconstruct the questions and writing prompts. I have found that students score poorly on the Reading and ELA sections because they do not know what the questions are asking them to do.

We will also continue to be heavily writing focused. Students are really getting on board with writing, and their enthusiasm shows in their writing and the excitement that they display when I give them writing tasks.


1) Review the most current ELA lesson or any lesson that was presented during the week for at least 10 min. each night.


*Inferences and Implicit Knowledge (Context Clues)

*GA Milestones Practice

*Informational Writing

Standards covered:

ELAGSE6RI1: Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.

ELAGSE6L3a.: Vary sentence patterns for meaning, reader/listener interest, and style (varying sentence patterns continues with added rigor throughout the standards).
