CRT Week!

This week our class has been working SO hard on CRTs. For those of you who don't know, that stands for Criterion Referenced Tests. Students take the tests in math, reading, and also science in 5th grade. The maximum score is 500, and 300 is meeting grade level.

This is always a tiring, stressful time, but our class has done an EXCEPTIONAL job of doing their best work. I have seen highlighting, rereading for evidence or clarification, checking answers multiple times, and a ton of good, clear writing! 

Everyone should be very proud of their hard work...just one more day, and on to our field trip to visit local bridges.

Check out our class wiki at for information on bridges that you can read, try out, and watch!
