So here we are staring down the barrel at the end of the school year and we have a lot to cover. So get some popcorn and settle in:
Milestone testing begins this coming Wednesday. Here is the schedule for the week:
Wednesday: ELA part 1
Thursday: ELA part 2
Friday: ELA part 3
Monday: Math part 1
Tuesday: Math part 2
What you need to know:
We have told the kids that they are ready for this test. They have worked all year long and this is their time to show you and us how much they have learned. We did talk extensively about being careful and taking their time, reading the whole question and making sure they use their strategies. If you could reiterate all of those things to them I think it would really help. They will do great!!!
Also, if you have not sent in your super, secret envelope, please do as soon as possible! We think the kids we really love to have the daily encouragement!
Please remember what you have been assigned for snacks and treats. If you can’t remember let us know and we can tell you.
We told them to make sure they get a good night’s rest, a good breakfast every night and play outside as much as possible during testing. This will make their brain work best.
That’s enough of that…
Thank you for those that turned in the Bare Books and the extra! Please remember that we are beginning our work on those next week. Your child brought home the “home” portion of this assignment and it is due MONDAY. This is the central part of the project, so we need those turned in!
We will also be doing a BOOK REVEAL party on Friday, May 19th at 12:45 in the classroom and you will be invited! We will send more details out as it gets closer, but you will not want to miss this!
