Students have been doing some amazing writing in the classroom and revisiting a few of the more tricky grammar concepts. They're clearly ready for the test. Please be sure they get plenty of rest and have a healthy, protein-packed breakfast each morning. Along with a fresh handful of No. 2 pencils, students should bring healthy snacks, water, and confidence to school each morning.
Homework and classwork will continue to be a bit different to accommodate the testing. Here's what else we're working on:
Reading: We'll get back to our novels and do a second genre study plus address the thorniest reading skills; the final book project involves a biography
Science: Wrapping up our geology unit; students may bring their rocks & minerals for a gem show & tell on Thursday, April 2
Math: Measurement plus a review of all units and revisiting targeted skills
SEL: Solving more difficult problems
Remember — no school Friday, April 3.
