Homework and Feedback for Parents!!

-Great job taking the IOWA tests.  The students really gave it their all……so what is next?

-Next, around the end of May or beginning of June parents will receive a “Parent Report” from the school showing the percentages your child scored in.  They will not be “graded” like a test nor will these results appear on the Report Cards.  This is simply another tool to evaluate learning and success in various subjects.

If you need an appointment after your results are in to discuss the results further, I am more than happy to have you come in after school and we can discuss.

-Finally, students worked on their Chapter 7 Study Guide for Social Studies.  The Social Studies Test for Chapter 7 will be next Tuesday.

Great job on IOWA’s again today…..please remember the sharpened #2 pencils and get to bed early!!  Good luck!!


Homework: March 5, 2018:

-Our story for the week is “Unique Animals”.  We will still learn the skills and review the story, but there is no Reading Test, Vocabulary Test, or Spelling Test this week on this story.

-Students were asked to complete Reading Comprehension questions 1 and 2 only at the end of the story.  If they did not complete this, they have to finish at home.

-Also, please finish Spelling pages at home for practice if you did not complete in school today.

Parents, I cannot begin to tell you how very proud I was of each of the students today.  It was a BIG first day of testing, and they did an awesome job.  Each student had their pacing down,  followed directions, and completed each section as best they could.  Really a great start to our testing!!!   Keep it up!!!

Tomorrow we test in Grammar and Spelling!!!  We got this!!!!!!!
