Day 1!

Super proud of the effort I saw from my HR today!  Day 1 is in the “books”! (See what I did there?)  Looking forward to continued effort for tomorrow’s back to back Reading/ELA sections!!!

Strategies we reviewed…

#1 Read the questions first! (Green shoes vs. Brown hair!)

#2 Quick summaries WHILE you’re reading.  Stop and tell yourself 2-3 details every 2-3 paragraphs.

#3 Circle…bubble! WRITE in your test booklet and keep track of your answers and question numbers as you go!
