Today we took our MAP-P test on the Chromebooks. The children did a great job of using the Chromebooks. A few of them had to be flexible when the touchscreen wouldn't work, so they had to use the mouse pad instead. I am really impressed with how quickly they started to work. This test is not graded, but instead used for guiding our small group instruction. This test will be given two more times this year to follow their progress. The next couple days will also involve some testing, but with not so much fanfare! While children are working in stations, I will be pulling students over to do a little reading and quick checks on alphabet recognition and words. This will help as we get ready in the next week or two for small group guided reading. Friday the children will be taking another test on the Chromebooks. This will be a general reading test and once again, is used to guide our instruction and follow their progress.
Enjoy this beautiful evening!
