Larimore Parent Newsletter
Week of 10/05/2020
On Tuesday, October 6, 2020, the 2nd and 3rd graders will be taking the Aimsweb Plus benchmark. Please understand that this test is not a test of intelligence or for a grade but rather a test to gather data on where your child is currently. The data from this test will help us plan and guide instruction for your child this year. With that being said, please encourage your child to do the best that they can on their own. Please do not help them with any portion of the test once logged in. click the links below for step by step instructions to help your child log into the assessment.
On Tuesday, October 6, 2020, the 2nd and 3rd graders should still log in to the class as they would a normal day. The teacher will take attendance and then review the directions and steps for logging in to the test. During the time of 9:30-11:00, your child is expected to complete both the reading comprehension and vocabulary tests. Classes that complete both tests will receive a shout out in the afternoon announcements. Please look for login information from your child's teacher.
