This Week at McMillin – April 10th-14th

State testing is starting in May for our 3rd through 6th-grade students.

The state testing program is designed to get hard for each student. The program is trying to see how high your child can go. Remind them that they will come across problems that they do not know how to do, but that it does not mean they cannot figure it out with time. Completing problems too fast is a concern, because they may have missed something. Faster does not mean smarter. This test is not timed, so remind your child to take their time and think through problems that they do not understand. I like to think of challenging problems as a game. See if they can beat the test. Time is on our side 🙂 …. to an extent.
