These posts are for students in my Read 180 class.

Bye!

Today, on our last day together, students took a 50-question multiple choice final exam. The exam was not on the computer. If you missed it, you’ll have to pick up a copy from the main office. Have a great summer!

Announcements: Tomorrow is our final exam, a cumulative, end-of-year rSkills test.

Activity: Students won’t do bell-ringers this week. (That’s right, folks! No Thank Goodness It’s Grammar!) Students spent time taking the third rSkills test and then wrote the Persuasive Letter On-demand.

Thank Goodness It’s Grammar: Students started class by completing the 5-26 TGIG.
