The students worked so hard today on NWEA and I-Ready tests. We have a social studies test tomorrow over unit 4. We reviewed today. Please go over the study guide with your child tonight so they are ready for the test tomorrow. There will not be another NWEA test tomorrow.
Congratulations to all the students who earned awards at Friday’s honors assembly. You can see pictures from the assembly on the photos page of my blog. Congratulations also to Ebraheem Ahmed who completed his second math module on Zearn this weekend! I am so proud of my class for all their hard work and perseverance. They will be putting that perseverance and hard work to the test this week as we begin our mid-year testing cycle. Tomorrow we will be taking the NWEA science test first thing in the morning. It is very important your child comes to school on time. We have had many students coming in 10-15 minutes late every day which disrupts instruction. We will also be taking the I-Ready diagnostic test in the afternoon. Once that is completed students can access the website again from home. Tuesday we will have a social studies test for the end of the unit. A study guide will come home tomorrow. Thursday we will have a math test for the end of module. And Friday is the end of the card marking period. There will be no spelling test this week. We also have a half day on Friday. Dismissal will be at 11:45. Here is our week ahead.
Math: We have one more lesson to finish on addition, subtraction, and rounding. Students will get a study guide on Wednesday, and the test is Thursday. This will leave Friday for any make-up tests if students were absent. Due to the amount of testing this week, please make sure your child is not absent unless he or she is sick.
Science: We will not be starting anything new this week due to all the testing.
Social Studies: A study guide will be given on Monday, and the test will be on Tuesday. This test will cover the economic growth of Michigan.
Reading: We will be comparing and contrasting stories.
Writing: We will begin brainstorming lists of opinion topics to write about.
We will be taking our mid-year I-Ready diagnostic test on Monday. Please make sure your child DOES NOT try to go on the website this weekend. If they do, they will be taking the test and their scores will be invalid.
