Benchmark testing for English will be this week. We have reviewed and the students can go to IXL and practice their reading skills. Monday will be the writing benchmark. Friday and Monday November 5 will be the reading benchmark. I am giving the reading last so the students can practice their skills and review a little more. The reading a is a little harder in middle school and the students must read the passages completely to answer the questions.
The students know their IXL passwords and login information.
The students were given two sheets stapled together today. One in on quotation marks and commas and the other one is on commas only. They are to complete both tonight for homework. We will go over them in class and the assignment counts as 1 homework and 1 daily grade.
Thanks for your support!
