More Testing

Sigh. Today was the mandated Quarter 2 math test. Why schedule it the week after the Literacy Test? I suspect nobody was in charge of thinking about that.

Still, I think they seemed to do pretty well on it. At least these new tests, once they have been scanned and entered into the district’s computers, do provide teachers with some helpful feedback about what specific skills need work. That’s more than the old ones used to do.

Other than that, we worked on editing our teamwork stories, and we read a little about ants to introduce our week’s story in the Treasures book.

Homework:  (1) Write spelling words 1-5 five times each in cursive. (2) Do “Vocabulary” and “Description" on pages 205-206 of the Practice Book. (3) Do “Character and Moral” and “Greek Roots” on pages 209-210 of the Practice Book. (4) Do “Write an Equation” pages 261-262 and “Test Prep” pages 264-265 in the math book. Also do “Crazy Quilt” on the back of the answer sheet. (5) Do “Adding and Subtracting Fractions 1” worksheet.
