SOLs will be held in May 2016. We have been trying to incorporate cumulative assessments & activities for students throughout the year to try to keep all content fresh & relevant. We encourage students to review material a little bit each night so that there is no "cramming" (which can cause a lot of unnecessary stress). Below are some suggestions for how to help your child prepare for end of the year assessments.
**Please remember: We realize that the SOLs are only ONE measure of your student's academic ability. Their SOL score does not define who they are! We are extremely proud of our students' progress this year regardless of a test score. With that being said, we will want all students to give their best effort on the SOL in order to show off their academic growth
Students should review notes in their science binder. They should particularly go back and review all tests (on salmon colored paper)
Science review website created by Mrs. Teresa Cooper:
Please see the "Helpful Tutorials" tab to watch example problems worked out. These are great to watch in order to understand some of the different strategies available for students to use.
IXL is a great math sites that allows students to practice VERY SPECIFIC skills that they may be struggling with. The free version allows students to practice 20 problems a day. I highly recommend this site for your student to practice a few problems a night!
Students should continue doing their weekly math homework. It is designed as a spiral review so they can practice topics taught throughout the year.
