September 19

Tonight the students are bringing home their first math test. Overall, I was
quite pleased with how they did. It was the first test that they took, using
our new math series. Question 17 gave them a hard time, and I do not think
they had had a lot of exposure to what it was asking. I typed the question
and today we went over exactly what it was asking them to do. I then let
them mark the paper. Those who got the question correct had their scores
Next week we will take a test over the first Social Studies chapter. We have
made our salt dough maps and they are drying. Next week they will paint them
in art. A study guide will be coming home for the test.
Be sure to see the science test that came home, sign and return. This lets
us know that they showed it to you.
