Hey Parents, Just wanted to inform you of 3 upcoming tests to wrap up 4.5 weeks of standards we have been mastering. Next Friday (November 17), your child will be tested in Social Studies, Math, and Reading.
Social Studies- This will cover the “Turn of the Century” unit that we have been working on for four weeks now. It will cover cowboys/cattle drives, inventors and inventions that impacted life in America, America’s expanding role in the world, and the impact of immigration pertaining to further development of the United States. A study guide will go home with your child today, and it is important that they review it every day until next Friday, as well as all of their notes in their interactive journals.
Math- This will cover adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals. They will review all homework items, classwork items, and homework next week to assure that they are prepared.
Reading- This will cover Reading standards RL1, RL2, and RL3…quoting from the text, making inferences from the text, discussing theme, and comparing and contrasting elements from the story. They will be working off of passages given to them (This is not a test on Esperanza)
BUSY BUSY WEEK! Thank you for your assistance in helping them prepare at home! Please let me know if you have any planned absences.
