We have a few more days left until the DC CAS state assessments.
During DC CAS testing in the spring, 6th to eighth grade students must not only know basic and advanced knowledge and skills, they must retain them, understand them, and use them in real life situations.
As parents you can help with improving your child/children's test scores by letting your child do their homework at home which I have linked from this class website. All of the links, the powerpoint and the practice probes and games here have been used presented in class and should be reviewed and practiced by your child. In the next few days, I will be uploading some videos that your child can watch at home related to the lessons that we are learning in the classroom from Discovery Education. Please ask your child to visit the class website and do the homework using the log-in codes listed.
As your child's teacher, I am working very hard to give him/ her the academic supports that he/ she needs even outside the classroom and even beyond the call of duty. I want to see your child successful in life as much as you do.
Please take a few minutes to review the class website and work with your child each night on some of the strategies offered. Even students not in my class and from other school districts are using our Practice Probes and are having fun while learning from it.
Thank you for taking the time to always read my weekly emails. Your involvement is critical to your child's success.
