 I can't believe we are already in the month of April and beginning our state assessments.  The time has flown by with your children.  I enjoy every moment I get to work with them.  I look forward to continuing to help your child with their confidence in reading and reading performance tasks.  Together, I believe we can achieve anything.

 

February Focus/Skills:

 

6th Grade - FSA Test Preparation - *Waggle (Click on the pig icon below to work on skills at home)

 

 7th Grade - FSA Test Preparation - *Waggle (Click on the pig icon below to work on skills at home)

 

8th Grade - FSA Test Preparation - *Waggle (Click on the pig icon below to work on skills at home)

*This program is individualized for your child.  They should know or have their login information written in their planner.  Time spent and dedicated to this program will help your child strengthen skills that will help them succeed on the FSA and overall reading comprehension and fluency. 

 

AR - 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade 

 AR deadlines for 4th Nine Weeks - May 5th

50% Due (2 points)  - Grade April 19th

100% Due (4 points)  - Grade May 5th

Students SHOULD be reading 30 minutes a day. Daily reading goals/time will help your child to practice the skills learned in class which will help them to make gains in their reading development and understanding. 

*Any extra points earned this nine weeks will earn extra credit toward classwork and AR grades in the grade book.  

 

 Please remember I am always here if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Sincerely,

   Miss M
