It's Opening Day!


Smarter Balanced Practice Test  Welcome back from Spring Break and hooray for baseball's Opening Day! Next week, you will begin taking the annual standardized test known as the Smarter Balanced Test, which is intended to measure what you know and what you've learned. I want you to be familiar with the format of the test, so today we will be taking a practice test, which you can find here. Click 'Sign In,' select 'Grade 6,' choose 'ELA Practice Test,' click the 'Select' button, and finally click 'Yes, Start My Test.' I will review the first section with you and then provide you  some time to practice and expore the test.

Homework  Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and, if you choose, make a reading log entry using the Digital Reading Log. (Remember you must have made at least one entry by the end of the day Friday.)
