Tomorrow, and Tuesday, students will be taking the Reading Inventory (RI). This is an important test, so we are encouraging students to take it seriously and take their time.
The proficiency range for a 7th grader is 970-1124. Please discuss your student's current Lexile level with the to see where they fall and how they can set a goal to improve upon their score.
Although we are just beginning Unit 2, the focus of this unit is to write an Informative or Explanatory paper based on a research topic and/or question. Discuss some possible quality questions with your child, so they will be actively thinking about a topic for an effective paper. Papers/Essays carry high weight for grading.
Students are reminded to read 30 minutes a night and to always have their independent reading books with them, especially on Fridays.
