BENCHMARK READING CURRICULUM:  Click HERE to learn more about BENCHMARK.

The week of Jan. 8. 5, ELA the students took a Benchmark Interim Reading Assessment test. This assessment will provide a snapshot of where students' reading skills are "right now" as we end Semester I and the mid-point of the school year. The student data from Benchmark will guide lessons, facilitate small group instruction and help us to make adjustments to meet the needs of our students at LHUC. 

WINER FAST BRIDGE READING TEST
On Thurs. Jan. 18 the students will take a Fast Bridge Reading Test.

Our ELA curriculum also includes class novels, independent reading, journaling, and integrated E.L.A. & S.S. research projects. Students should bring their ELA & SS binder, an agenda book, journal and independent reading book to class daily! Please let me know if you have any questions.
