SBAC IS Coming to Classtopia
Classtopians are getting ready for the SBAC. This is a big test to show all that we have learned during the school year. It is very important for us to do well. I guess it will make our school look good if we do a good job. All over the school signs and posters are pasted on the walls.
The most important thing is that we come to school every day that week. The test will begin for us on May 1st. We will take Mathematics and English Language Arts.
Eating breakfast and getting plenty of rest are also important to doing well. Another thing we can do is to stay calm and not panic when questions are difficult. We have been Practicing the Three Reads that we will use to completely understand what to do. The first read is to read once to understand the story. The second read is to understand the math/story. The third read is to make a plan. I think that if we use these strategies then all of us can exceed the standards.
To get ready our school had a Pep Rally for the SBAC. It was great. One of the 5th graders, Amayrami, sang the National Anthem. She has a great voice. Everyone was shocked. There were also students who rapped and the dance troupe performed.
The best part of the Rally was when the principal announced the students who exceeded the exam last year. Classtopians that were called were, Aiden Adrian, Alyssa, Diana, Daniela, Natalia (me), Sergio, and last but not least Brianna. I put her last because she had two perfect scores on the exam last year. She is the best role model in Classtopia.
Good Luck Classtopians. Remember to do your very best!
