NECAP Practice Sessions
Here's a great-looking group of Grade 4 students taking advantage of a special NECAP "ramp-up" session this week. Today's group worked on Math, led by Math Specialist, Mrs. Nedwidek. Another session focused on Reading. Teachers included in the sessions have been Mrs. Wright, Ms. Peduzzi, Mrs. Owren, Ms. Miceli, and myself.
These sessions are a new initiative we're trying this year. As we know, not only do students get tested on content, but they also need to learn test-taking strategies. These students were enthusiastic and engaged as they plotted out answers on the SMART Board. In fact, the other photo shows one student taking a real "hands-on" approach, using the Touch Screen of the SMART Board. Good luck, kids!
