I have enjoyed the first semester with your child. Now we launch into the semester when there are serious tests in Language/writing, Math, and Reading.
Our pretest schedule is as follows:
Feb. 21: Language/writing for 4th grade
Feb. 28: Reading for both grades
Mar. 7: Math for both grades
These pretests are important because they help teach the students how to test, and show them what kinds of questions are asked.
Please also mark your calendars for the STAAR tests this spring. They are:
April 10: 4th graders take the Language/writing test
May 14: 3rd and 4th graders take their Math tests
May 15: both grades take their Reading tests
Please continue to help with reading and learning multiplication facts at home.
