This week ends NWEA district testing. This is an assessment the district will be using to monitor student growth year to year and assist in identifying students strengths and weaknesses. Our class will be finishing the Science assessment. There is no need to be concerned, the assessment is not used as an academic placement tool, for any of your student’s grades, or special education services. Students have completed the math, language, and reading portions of the NEWA assessment.

Math: This week students will learn what like fractions are. They will practice adding like fractions vertically and horizomtially.

ELA: This week students will continue creating and identifying homographs. They will also begin studying similes.

This week begins NWEA district testing. This is an assessment the district will be using to monitor student growth year to year and assist in identifying students strengths and weaknesses. Our class will be participating. It will take several days to complete the entire assessment. Our usual classroom activities will be abbreviated while we participate. There is no need to be concerned, the assessment is not used as an academic placement tool, for any of your student’s grades, or special education services.

ELA: This week students will continue creating and identifying hyperboles (an obvious or big exaggeration “This book weighs a ton.”)
