I wish I had something really REALLY exciting on the books for this week, but we are in test prep frenzy this week. Our ELA is April 1, 2, and 3 (really, NY? On April Fools Day? Seriously?). I plan to (re) teach text organization and then we will spend Thursday and Friday dissecting test passages. Thrilling, right?
I have to say, my kids are doing an amazing job justifying their choices and eliminations on the multiple choice sections.
Justifying - students cross out parts of the choice that makes the entire choice incorrect. Students make quick notes in the margins about why the choices are incorrect and why their choice is correct.
Six school days until the ELA. How about you? Are you in the midst of testing season?
