MCAS prep.

Students in grade 3 have been learning many test-taking strategies.  Over the last few weeks you have probably noticed many MCAS practice selections coming home in your child’s yellow homework folder.  Please review these selections with your child.  Ask your child to tell you about the different strategies he or she has been learning about and practicing in school.

We have also been trying out a new writing technique for open response questions called Writing With Color.  Click here to learn more about it.  Here are some seventh grade writing samples to show you how it’s used.

Our students will be taking the Reading MCAS on March 31 and April 1.
