The tests are shown posted on the EARLIEST day they could be given. If I feel more time is needed to prepare, the tests may be pushed off a bit. I will update the calendar as these decisions are made.
Tests in Science, Social Studies, and Spelling will be posted, since students are expected to spend time studying the material at home in preparation for these tests.
Since Reading and Math tests assess accumulation of ongoing skills, the students wouldn't necessarily be expected to "study" in preparation for these tests. Completing Math homework each evening and asking for help when experiencing difficulty will help prepare students for tests in Math. A topic test practice review sheet will be assigned at the end of each topic. The test will soon follow. Completing the independent reading requirements, including reading for at least 15 minutes a night, will help prepare students for Reading assessments.
The projects are shown posted on the day they are due.The comic strip for book #2 in the 4th marking period is due May 31st.
