This week we begin our Smarter Balanced testing. We have been prepping for these and I just know the kids are going to do great. I keep telling them all I can ask of them is to do their best and just show what they know!! We talked on Friday about making sure that they get a good night sleep and have a nutritious breakfast in the morning! We will test Monday-Thursday from 8:30-10:30. Then later in the day on Monday and Wednesday I will be teaching needed performance task activities.
Since testing is going to take a lot of brain power we are going to have a fairly laid back finish to each day. We will work on writing our personal narratives about a place that we love. We will also work on building our animal rescue device for PLTW. Also in social studies we will be learning about the offices at City Hall.
There will be no homework or spelling test this week due to testing.
This week is a short week with no school on Friday! Enjoy the week and cheer your kiddos on at homek, they are working their brains this week!!
Code Word: Show what you know time!
