Today in ELA we are focusing on Test Taking Strategies. Today we talked about time management. (3 hour test with a break each hour)
- That means reading 1 passage every 20-30 minutes (2-3 per hour). If you are going faster, slow down and re-read. If you are going MUCH slower, than you need to get focused.
- During Math - that means working on the calculator inactive the entire first hour and part of the second hour. I told them I won't give them a calculator during the first hour, until they have re-worked every problem and double checked for tricky answers.
During Math we started elapsed time. Add up the time spent to get to the new time.
During social Studies, we took notes on Sir Walter Raleigh and Manteo.
