This Week W8 E-Learning (5/18-5/22)

TeacherKathleen Manning
Subject AreaMath, Science, SS
Grade Level4
Week #8
Unit of InstructionI- Ready Diagnostic #3 for MATH and Make-Up Work
Standard(s) Taught

This is a very important week! Students will be doing Diagnostic #3 for Math and ELA. 

Please have students set aside some uninterrupted time to complete the Diagnostic and to do them on different days so they can give them full focus and attention, without rushing through.

These are important! We did not have FSA this year, so we would like to get a valid picture of student growth over the year in these subject areas and where they stand going into the next grade level.
