This is the beginning of the 5th 6 weeks. We have recently completed our second round of STAAR pretests. I am sending them home after the children and I discuss them. Can you please look at them with your child?
At this time of year, I always share the testing schedule with the children. So, this year's schedule is:
4th grade writing STAAR test: Tuesday, March 28
3rd and 4th grades STAAR math: Monday, May 8
3rd and 4th grades STAAR reading: Tuesday, May 9
We read daily and discuss what we read. Please have your child continue to read for 20 minutes or more Monday-Thursday. Also, remember your child needs to continue studying multiplication facts through 12X12.
We are currently studying food chains and food webs, measurement, run on sentences and sentence fragments, and media literacy.
I am enjoying working with your child.
