Parents Corner- Week of September 7, 2015

Upcoming Testing!!!!


MAP Testing (Measurement of Academic Progress)

This test is a computer based test done twice a year. It measures a students abilities in the areas of Math, Reading and Language Arts. It is done in the fall and in the spring. The goal is to see a year's worth of growth by the end of the school year. Grades 3rd - 5th will take this assessment on iPads this year.


Our schedule is as follows:


Thurs. Sept. 10th - Reading

Tues. Sept. 15th - Math

Thurs. Sept. 17th - Language

iPads

iPads have been distributed. If your child is planning to bring and use their own, they must be able to download the appropriate Apps that we are using in class. Any inappropriate conduct on iPads whether it's their own device or the school will result in consequences.


iPads will probably not start coming home until after MAP Testing, if you have completed the necessary steps.

Scootpad

I will begin using the Scootpad app in the classroom to reinforce skills. Your child knows their Username and Password, but we will add this to their agenda. This site can be accessed via computer, tablet or Ipad (anywhere there is internet access). They will receive assignments based on their needs. They can also do Math, Reading & Language practice anytime at home.
