Homework 4/9

Read 25 minutes

SOL Training Manual Week 2 – begin today and complete by Friday

We are almost out of pencils – please send some if you have extras at home 🙂

SOL Parent night is THIS THURSDAY! I will be here to show you how to prepare your student and what to expect on the upcoming SOLs. I hope to see you there 🙂

Practice for tomorrow’s test

I have found a practice test online that will be helpful for tomorrow’s test. It is  NOT EXACTLY what we have studied, but it is  close and good expericence.


Upcoming Week and homework 4/8

Welcome back from  break! I hope that everyone took advantage of the few sunny days that we had :).

We still have some 9 weeks tests to complete, and we have begun to review for the SOLs in reading and math using the data that we collected from those 9 weeks tests. 

  • I will begin sending home WEEKLY SOL REVIEW PACKETS that contain reading and math at the begining of every week.  They are due every Friday
  • It is best to break them into chunks ( a little every day) as there is a lot of work and it may be too much for one night).
  • These count as a homework grade, but more importantly, they are specifically designed to help your student get ready for the SOL.
  • I will send home Week 2 on Tuesday (we skipped week 1 and have a 9 weeks test tomorrow, so I’m sending it home a day later) and it will be due on Friday.
