ELA Preparing for ELA Tests and Prompted Text Based Writing- Lessons will continue, reading our just right books will continue, as we prepare for our state wide tests. We will look at various strategies and tips needed to be successful. We will self reflect on our responses and use our learning progressions to help us succeed. We will be using the reports of test scores, the latest news on the upcoming tests, as well as questions and annotated answers from prior year’s test.
