Important Dates

February 20th~No School

MAPELODEAN We are continuing with Mapelodean every week This weeks theme was READ THE QUESTION FIRST!!!

Test TiP: Read the Question First ( Pre-Reading Strategies) Although MAP directions may tell you to read the passage first and then answer the questions that follow, research and practice show that reading the questions first gives you a purpose and direction for reading. Reading a testing question is clearly different than reading for pleasure. What is your purpose for reading? Think of your STAR method. You are reading for information. Reading the questions first is like using a magnifying glass. It helps you pull out and SEE the information clearer as you read!
Conferences We are finishing up conferences this evening. If we have not met for your student -led parent teacher conference, please contact me at your earliest convenience. We are expecting 100% attendance to conferences. I really look forward to and am thankful for the opportunity to meet with you and discuss all of the wonderful things about your child!
