State testing has begun! The students in grade three have been learning about strategies they can use to help them as they begin this year's round of the Smarter Balanced state testing. Many useful ideas were discussed such as ruling answers out, re-reading for understanding, using tools on the computer like highlighting or flagging, and writing an opinion.
It will be important for students to get a good night's rest and have a good breakfast so they can face this challenge and do their very best.
This week, students will work on reading/language arts activities and next week their focus will be on math.
Each testing morning (thanks to the staff and the PTO), students will have a bit of exercise and a quick snack before the test. All the students agree they are up to the challenge and are ready to show what they know!
