On the final countdown!
We’ve finally reached May and we just passed mid quarter. The last few weeks of school are going to go extremely fast. We have several activities and fieldtrips planned so if you have any questions, make sure to ask your student and then feel free to contact me!
Smarter Balanced testing takes us quite a long time to complete. We are finishing the up the performance tasks (which involves critical comparisons, short answers, and essays). Once students complete this in class, the next round of testing will be focused on finishing iReady testing for the district. We review concepts daily in class because as we know, ‘if you don’t use it, you lose it!’ We typically test in the morning when students are fresh and the atmosphere is quiet. Remember…students are allowed to bring snacks for our testing daily.
