011016 – Tuesday – Day 93


Welcome to week 20, and day #2 of MAPS testing.  We will still complete our daily starters, and we will still have vocabulary.  But, I want you to focus on your MAPS test.  That is the most important thing to do this week.  Don’t forget that you can only get your free Carnival Wristband (a $15.00 value) if you meet your goals.  I will pass out another sheet with your goals.  you should have already put those goals on page 30 of your agenda.  Your score for this test should be 219 for a 7th grader.  Below that, you are not testing at a 7th grade level.  Remember our Say, Mean, Matter strategy.  That will help you to slow down and really think about your answers.  Also, we are competing with the entire school to do the best.  Let’s show everyone what we are capable of doing!!

If you finish MAPS testing early, then you may work on our classwork.  There is a vocabulary test that is due.  Make sure you find time this week to complete it.  It covers last week’s words.  We also have AR reading to get through.  Reading logs are in the back of the room.

I need your reading logs and Frayer Models.  Turn those in at the beginning of class so that we can get them graded quickly.

This week we are supposed to have a fun activity, but we can only do this if I get all of your classwork turned in.
