As we are now in the middle of the school year, students are completing many mid-year assessments to determine the course of instruction. In reading, students have completed a fluency assessment. In math, students have completed a computation assessment and have also taken the STAR test. STAR results were discussed today in class and the report was sent home.
This week, students will also participate in the Discovery Education assessment. This online assessment will help us determine which of the fourth grade standards have been mastered and which need to be retaught. Students will begin the reading portion on Wednesday and the math portion on Thursday.
For those attending the Carson City trip, please make your January payments to Lynn in the front office as soon as possible. Payments are $50 per person. We have several spots still open, so if you have not yet paid a deposit, but are interested in attending, please see Mrs. Rozgay-Miller as soon as possible.
A few things to ask your child about:
• What constellation are you researching?
• What part did you get in the play?
• Can you show me how to use partial product to solve 32 x 64?
• How many times have you logged on to XtraMath this week? How many times do you need to?
