With all the snow days, we have lost some valuable instructional time. We are working hard to make up and catch up from that lost time. This week brings 3 assessments to our fourth graders. They will need to write an information essay using research from Social Studies. I will be looking at their ability to apply all the skills they have learned this year about expository writing such as elaborating with a variety of evidence, using transition words, and writing like an expert.
They will also take the DRP in reading this week. This is an assessment of how well a reader can make meaning from what they are reading. by filling in missing words in nonfiction passages.
On Friday, they will have a math test on angles. They will have to measure and draw angles as well as identifying right, obtuse, and acute angles.
