DEA Assessment: Your boys and girls will be taking their final DEA test in kindergarten. This test measures student achievement on standards in language arts and math. Your boys and girls have been preparing all year for this assessment and are ready to show off what they’ve learned! We will be taking our Language Arts test the morning of Wednesday, April 18th and our Math test the morning of April 25th. Your boys and girls are well prepared academically, but there are some things you can do at home to make sure they are ready the mornings of the test. The following are a few pointers that will help.
*Eat a healthy breakfast. As always, breakfast will be offered at school. Please make sure your kiddo eats a well balanced breakfast to give them the energy they need to do their best.
*Be present the days of the assessment. Students will be able to make up any missed tests, but it is always best to try to be with your regular class and your teacher.
*Get a good night’s sleep the night before the test. Please make sure your children get plenty of rest the nights before the tests (and every night!)
*Reassure them, they will do just fine! Your boys and girls are absolutely amazing and work so hard each and every day. They are more than prepared for this and will do a wonderful job!
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know!
Arts in the Park: Arts in the Park is a wonderful event that takes place on Monday, May 8th. Your boys and girls need to be here by 5:50 as it begins at 6:00. Please dress in spring clothing, but wear shoes that your child can easily dance in. This event will take place on the basketball courts, so please bring a blanket or lawn chair for your comfort.
AR: The final day to take AR tests in Friday, May 5th. Please be sure to continue sending in test if your child has not met his/her goal of 15 AR points and 80% comprehension.
Homework: Homework goes home every Monday and is due back on Friday. Please be sure to return the homework in the homework folder. Please review homework with your child and initial every homework page. Also, please use pencil, unless otherwise noted.
Baggy Books: he purpose of baggy books is to help your child practice his/her reading fluency. Fluency is the ability to read quickly and accurately. Fluency is important because it frees students to understand what they read. Baggy books will go home every Tuesday. Your student will read the book to you on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Then you will return the book on Thursday in the bag in your child's back pack. I will send home a new book the following Tuesday. Your child will not get a new book until the previous book is returned. So, please be sure to return baggy books on every Thursday. Baggy books are not AR books, so there will not be any AR quizzes taken on baggy books. Again, the baggy book is for your child to read to you. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I do! Happy Reading!
I'lll see you soon in room 431! Bring your smiles! :) :)
