We are going to be wrapping up several units here in the next two weeks. I will send out a remind text at some point next week to let you know when the students will have a test or quiz. I can tell you that they will have a Unit test in Math, Social Studies and Science over the course of the next two weeks. The way in which they can prepare for them is by studying their notes in their interactive notebooks. As 5th grade teachers, we spend a lot of time preparing the interactive notes and that is our "study guide" for test prep.
I sent home a progress report in your child's Friday Folder. Please be reminded that this is just a progress update. This is not a report card. Your child still has about three weeks to bring up their grades. Remember classwork assignments cannot be redone. Unless you see the word "test, quiz, or assessment" next to the assignment, it is a classwork grade. I remind students daily that they need to check over their work and these things cannot be redone. I also do not to retakes on spelling tests or projects. Please let me know if you have any questions about expectations. Please sign and return the progress report and return in the folder on Monday.
IOWA testing will begin next Friday and will go until the 21st. We use this test as a data point when determining Target students and areas of concern. Make sure your student is on time and eats a healthy breakfast!
I know this week is a rather lengthy post, but thanks for being committed parents and reading everything each week. Have a wonderful weekend!
