The homework I assigned today is due after vacation.
There was a letter from Mrs. Rao and me detailing practice test work to do over break. What I suggested to the children is that after they do one part, they use the review books to look up any questions they had, or lessons they were unsure of. That way they can see if it will help on the second one.
I also gave them a set of vocabulary flashcards for math. These words are key to understanding the questions. They should finish making the cards and STUDY the words!
If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
Note re: SS test. Yes, it's cancelled.
With all the stress over the Science Fair and test prep and vacation, it seems cruel to add another test in there, so I'll just count the practice one they did. Now if anyone is disappointed and wants the test, I'll be happy to accommodate individuals. ;)

We are working in the Test Prep Ready NYCC:
Tonight's homework -
Math - pages 119 - 125. It says do with a group, but this is all work we have done before, so just write out the answers on your own in the back half of the notebook.
ELA - pages 159 - 168. Read carefully!!!! You don't have to write everything out. Just write out the answers. Do it in the front half of the notebook I gave you.
Parents - I sent home the COACH books to those who ordered. You can feel free to have your child work on any part of it you wish (alone or with you or the tutor). The children did a practice test today so I will send home individualized suggestions for practice.I will be happy to check any work if you like.
