Reading

Tuesday, the students will complete ELA Session 1 of the MAP Test. That afternoon, we will review MAP practice items with a game of Jeopardy. Wednesday, the students will introduced to point of view from a first, second, and third person perspective. They'll see which pronouns go along with each perspective. Thursday, the students will take ELA Sessions 2 & 3 of the MAP Test.
