We have officially finished our Milestone Testing! The kiddos did a great job!!!! If you haven’t already heard, we had a fun incentive for students to do their best. They had an Milestone MVP Punch card, where they could earn punches each day for 1) being at school, 2) taking their time, and 3) for showing their strategies. Based on the amount of punches they received, they earned specific prizes. These prizes include: extra recess, game/tech hour, movie, art party, and slime party! They are all so excited! We are all so incredibly proud of our students!
Milestones are coming up shortly and we want to make sure you have all the tools you need to be prepared! The fourth graders are reviewing previous skills from this year in class, but we are also sending home 2 study guides for you to use–a purple reading study guide and a blue math study guide. These packets have key terms that the students need to know for the Milestones. With this, we are also sending home a Study Log to record their minutes at home. Your child’s teacher is also sending home additional resources to use! Be on the lookout for these!!
