New York State Testing

The students will be taking two New York State exams this year.  The students will take the  New York State English Language Arts Exam and the New York State Math Exam.  We will prepare for these tests throughout the year.  The students will take several practice exams in class so that they are familiar with the format of the test.  Strong partnerships between home and school are essential for maximizing student success.  If you notice that your child is struggling with a particular literacy or math skill, please feel free to write me a note.  There are many activities that you can do at home with your child as well.   There are a myriad of websites that your child can visit to build his/her literacy or math skills.  Click here if you would like to go to an interactive website that reviews the content that will be covered on these two New York State exams.  Click here if you would like to find out more about the New York State English Language Arts and Math exams.
