Hello to all on this rainy Tuesday! I hope I am finding you well, wonderful, and dry!
We began our day by completing Reading, part 1 and Math part 1 of our Terra Nova testing. The students worked well and the time went by fast...before we knew it, it was over and time to head to resource classes.
I hope you were able to click the link I shared yesterday and read about our Tournament of Books that is going on along with the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament. We are trying to determine our SMA 5th grade's 2015 Book of the Year! What will it be?!!? I hope everyone has already begun immersing themselves in one of these books that they may not have read yet!
