April 5-April 9, 2021

FRIDAY, APRIL 9--REMOTE LEARNING DAY FOR ALL ROANE COUNTY STUDENTS! 
 
This week, we are working on TCAP Reviews and Practice packets.  I encourage you to watch the lessons again on Google Classroom.  That's why I am posting these solution videos for everyone. 
 
TCAP-Language Arts--April 13, 14, 15
         -Math--April 16 & 19
         -Science--April 20
 
iReady testing will be soon after we complete TCAP. 
 
Also, if you want extra practice at home, I encourage you to go to Moby Max and work on your prescribed skills.  These skills are based on how you did on the pretest, so the skills the program gives you will help fill in those gaps.  Just 15-20 minutes 3 or 4 times a week will make a BIG difference! 
 
Please continue to work on those multiplication tables!  All of you have an Xtramath account.  Please use it!  Log in through Clever, click on my page, then choose the Xtramath icon.  Next, click log in with Clever and you should be there! 
 
You have access to Moby Max, iReady, and IXL every day.  All of these programs give you practice on the skills you were weak in on your pretests.  Just spending 15 minutes a day in one of these (Moby Max is my favorite) can really boost your math skills!!! 
 
We will used these skills EVERY DAY!  You have to learn your multiplication tables! If you don't know these well, you will have a hard time with changing the denominators! 

March 22-26, 2021
