On Wednesday, March 3, the fourth grade students across the great state of Texas will take the writing portion of the TAKS test. This test includes two sections: Revision and Editing and Written Composition. I am proud to say that all of our students are ready to show their skills as a writer. As a brief reminder, all students will need to get to bed early on Tuesday night and eat a healthy breakfast on Wednesday morning to help them be ready. Just like an Olympic athlete, the students must be in the best condition for this test of endurance to compete for the GOLD!
Here is a list of things to do to help you be prepared for Wednesday:
- Get plenty of rest on Tuesday night.
- Eat a healthy, protein filled breakfast before school.
- Wear your Roughneck shirt to support our team!
- Bring a room temperature bottle of water.
- Take your time when reading the test and questions, and show your strategies to prove your answers.
- ALWAYS do YOUR BEST!
I believe in you all! You are the best!
