Today, students took a practice AIR test using EdCite.com. Students were reminded to do their best on the essay portion just as we practiced last week. We will finish the test tomorrow in class. Students should spend at least one class period working on the test.
Today, students read independently. Absent students should read independently for 20 minutes and submit a half-page summary of their reading with an absent form attached for credit.
Then, students were introduced to the Independent Reading Project. We will use the calendar below to checkpoint the parts of the assignment. A checkpoint is when the work is pretty much done and it gives Mrs. Evans a chance to warn a student when the assignment is way off task or way incorrect and give feedback on some minor/overall changes that will improve their overall final grade.
