Mrs. McDaniel's Memo
Spring State Wide Testing Dates
Below are date windows for our spring state wide testing. Please know that we will not be testing on all of these days, but these are the ranges for when testing may be occurring. I will let you know more specific dates/times when I get them. I ask that you do your best to refrain from scheduling appointments for you children during these times. If you absolutely must, please schedule an afternoon appointment as testing usually (but not always) occurs in the morning.

We continue to work through chapter 6. I predict a unit test happening the last week of February.
Students also need to continue working on their multiplication facts. Don't forget that we will be doing our multiplication fluency quizzes every Tuesday/Thursday. Once everyone completes the 12's we will have an ice cream party.
Along with our NWEA testing and our field trip to BME, we had a day to focus on Martin Luther King Jr. We watched video clips of his speech and thought about what our dreams for the world. You can see our Dream Clouds hanging in the hallway.
Writing- We worked on finishing up our preposition poems. Next week we will begin our animal stories that we will get published in a hardback book.
