For the Week of 4/16/18
For the Sixth and Eighth Grade we will spend the week working on the Ready NY State Test on May first and second. We will be using the Ready books and I am downloading prior test from the state covering past exams, to get a general idea of the actual areas of the test to be given. There is no way to know the exact question areas however, since we started working with the prior tests and with the Ready book, students and I have recognized we have covered many of the topics. If a question arises that we haven’t dealt with, I will stop and teach that area. I will release the percentage of question areas to the students on Tuesday. Regarding homework, until the test is given, I will give homework based upon either the Ready book or the downloaded prior tests, therefore, I will base the homework on anything we didn’t finish in class.
