After STAAR Testing

After STAAR testing we will begin reviewing for our next test on May 18th.  Students will have a review sheet along with all their note sheets and worksheets to study.  Their warm-up exercises are also a great thing to review.  Tutorials for the test itself will be Tuesday, May 16th.  After the test we will begin our ABC project over material from the entire school year.  These are the last two major grades and could determine whether some students pass/fail for the year.  I encourage you to help keep them focused these last four weeks of school.  Thanks for your help!
