This week we continue on with much of the same as last week. We are learning about finding the area and perimeter of a rectangle, this is covered much more in depth in 3rd grade, this year is more of a review and using their knowledge in real life situations.
Next week we start SBAC testing. I will be sending home a packet we have worked on together. Go over it and discuss the areas your child feels unsure of. I will post more next week, but some things to remember include making sure your child gets plenty of sleep and good nutrition. Have some time to play outside, and don't be surprised if your child may feel tired, irritable, or anxious. I am trying to stress the importance of the test, but reminding them they already know how to take the test and how to do what is expected, they just need to take their time and read. I don't want them to feel stressed out over testing. Trying to fill the week with positive comments, as well as affirmation and encouragement.
