I just wanted to send out a special thanks to all of the parents who have sent snacks for testing this week and for the week in May! We are set to go and I know the students are going to perform so well on their SBAC testing.
(I like this quote!!)
Thanks for all of your support parents!!
We are at the start of the final trimester of school.
Some of the things you should expect are the scholars will be writing in cursive all of the time now. They will be writing a lot more in all genres of writing: summary, opinions, narrative, and informative. The skills they will need to advance in are certainly being able to provide evidence for their answers, as well as citing sources. They will have to be able to type move fluently and practice for the SBAC testing which will start in April.
We have started taking a test or two to practice the SBAC. Please take time at home to look up other ways the scholars can practice as well.
We will be working on math a lot more to make sure that we cover all of the chapters before testing begins.
We are continuing to work on fractions as well as changing fractions to decimals!! A difficult concept for some, so if you have any tricks at home that you would like to show your scholars feel free to do so!!
We are anticipating holding off on science until the end of April and we will studying social studies until then, specifically the Gold Rush.
