Quizzes and Tests, and Homework

Parents,

I did leave off the Science Quiz 1 for today on the newsletter.  We are ready for Quiz 1 today over pages 2-14 and Quiz 2 will be Friday over pages 15-26, unless we do not get all of the material covered by then.  Please know that quizzes and test can be moved forward a day or two if we are not where I had mapped out in my plans to be.  Things often come up and we do not get to have History and Science on the same day.  We do our best to stay on track.

I know there are a lot of Quizzes and Tests and they may fall on the same day.  Our A Beka curriculum follows this format.  There may be two quizzes in one subject or a quiz followed by a test.  Students must study a little each night in Science and History.  The questions over the chapter checkup probably took the students a while to complete last night.  Sorry if it was a stressful night. It will all come together as they learn the routine.  But please know, they can not put off studying untill the last night before a quiz.  Ask your child questions over what was highlighted that day in class, this should help them review each night.  4th grade is a tough grade, students are learning to be more independent and may need a boost to reach this independence.

Thank you for all you do for your child.

Blessings,
Miss Cynthia
