It is hard to believe that this school year is now half-way over. For the first half of the school year, our focus has been on the standards of Reading Process, Acquisition of Vocabulary, and Reading Applications of Information, Technical and Persuasive Text. We are now focusing on Reading Applications of Literary Text and will continue with Acquisition of Vocabulary.
We will also now begin the process of gaining momentum in preparing for the OAA that will be administered in late April. We will be focusing a lot on reading strategies, test-taking strategies, and impressing “Martha”. Thanks to Mrs. Stevenson at Laurelville, “Martha” is the fictitious person who will be scoring their OAA extended response questions. She will be a constant presence in our classroom over the next few months!
