The Reading Corner
Language Arts classes will have a spelling test on Thursday; students will bring practice home to help them study, and words can be found on Ms Cooper's website. We are counting the days to next week's STAAR test, so in class we will focus on reinforcing skills and building confidence. I know that our students' hard work and dedication will be rewarded with success on this measure of their 5th grade skills! (Parents, please contact your child's teacher if he or she becomes unnecessarily stressed over the prospect of testing, so we can partner with you to ease anxiety.)
