Star Testing and Creative Writing


Star Reading Test  Today you will take the Star Reading Test in order to reassess your reading level. My hope is that each of you will show growth today compared to the assessment from the beginning of the year. Considering how dedicated many of you have been to your reading, I'm excited to see how well you do. You may take the test here. Remember, after logging in to click on "Star Reading." Read carefully. Good luck! 

Creative Writing Time  Today we finally have time to dedicate to our writing! We have two pieces we have been working on recently: the "I Am From" Poem and the 100 Word Challenge: 5 Words (Week #15). Let's dedicate time to working both. Please remember to read over your writing carefully in order to make sure it's as good as it can be. If you would like to meet with me today, I will be available at the author's table. We will be publishing both pieces of writing on Kidblog tomorrow! 

Homework  (1.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and make a Digital Reading Log entry. (2.) Complete your "I Am From" Poem and 100 Word Challenge: 5 Words (Week #15) story. We will publish both tomorrow, Friday, December 12.
