Today students started on their 8th Grade Final. We are in preparation that the final will take at least 2 days. Students need to take their time and use their notes. It is an open note test. Please remember that USA Test PREP assignments are due on Monday at midnight! This is a quiz grade!!!! Students have had a week to work on them. There will be NO exceptions!
For the course of the Milestones this week and next, I will not be updating the BLOG nightly. We are not reviewing skills using worksheets or paper and pencil types of methods. We will be reviewing by playing interactive games and working in groups. I understand that the Milestones can be stressful so I wanted to give the students a break and involve them in some more engaging ways to review. There will be no notes until after Milestone Testing is finished. Good luck EVERYONE! I know you can do it! Try your best and you will be successful!
Homework: Go to bed EARLIER than normal and EAT breakfast!!!! EVERYDAY!
Georgia Milestones Tips: 1. Go to bed 30 minutes earlier than you normally do so that you will be rested for the test. 2. Eat breakfast before coming to school and if you do not have time, get breakfast at school. 3. Be at school and be on time. You may not take the test with your class if the test has started before you arrive at school. 4. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes while taking the test. 5. Relax and show your best work. You are ready for the test. Use your time wisely during the test—you have approximately 70 minutes each to complete the reading and math sections and approximately 60 minutes to complete the science and social studies sections. You are allowed to go back and check your answers.
* Please go ahead and clear your calendar for the following days. Vacations, doctor’s appointments, and other appointments should NOT be planned for Georgia Milestones testing dates.
