9 Weeks Test and SOL Preparation


We are getting closer to SOL’s by the day and I wanted to make you aware of a technique that we use here at LUES.  Each student is allowed to have scratch paper for the SOL and we teach them to make a “brain dump” to put onto paper much of the information that they will need and use for the tests. I have attached the math, reading and virginia history brain dump to this post so that children can practice at home.  It is helpful to students who have it memorized and can easily copy it down for the test.
