Our First Test – Homework Oct. 9, 2018
Next week we will have our first Math test. Test taking is a skill just like anything else. It is important that as students, we continue to think about who we are as learners, what we need to do to best prepare for the test, and what tools we will need in order to be successful.
Here is the outline for the test, describing exactly what students need to know. At the bottom of the page you will find study suggestions. The most important thing is that EVERYONE should be practicing, no matter what. We all have different extra curricular activities, so how and when we study will depend on the child. A good trick is to take out a calendar, and decide when you will practice which skill, so that it is not overwhelming for the day before the test. I suggest starting with the most difficult concept in case there are any questions that need to be answered.
Students will be provided with lots of review sheets to practice at home, and we will also be continuing to review in class.
