Week of June 1st - 5th ~ MAP Reading and Math Testing
During the week of June 1st - 5th, our students will take their first MAP tests. The MAP test, which stands for Measures of Academic Progress, is a nationally administered adaptable assessment that measures student growth and achievement in Math and Reading. (For more info go to http://www.nwea.org.) Students will take two sections of a Math test and two sections of a Reading test. Because the test is adaptive (increases difficulty when the student answers correctly) it often can be challenging for students. I tell the kids there will be questions they may not know, and that that is ok! I give them the message ~ try your hardest, but don't worry about anything you don't know!
Thursday, June 4 ~ PBL Showcase! @ 6 pm
The PBL showcase is a school-wide celebration of our spring projects and is a time for students and families to come and learn together! Our kindergarten life-size African savanna will be displayed in the hallway outside our classroom along with copies of our collaborative “All About” African animal books.
TBA ~ Field Day!
Tuesday, June 16th ~ Last Day of Kindergarten!
