Welcome to Mrs. Venable's 4th Grade Webpage
Week of 3/7:
With the announcement of the requirement of administration of the IAR (Illinois Assessment of Readiness) Standardized test, we will be preparing our students in many ways. In class, we will work on test taking strategies, coping with test anxiety, and multiple exposures to timed practice sets. I sent home some literature about test anxiety, perfectionism, and growth mindset- these have some practical ideas for you at home to help your child approach this exam with a healthy mindset. The IAR window will begin on April 13th. You will get a more specific schedule of the ELA and Math test dates as soon as we have them. Remember that any test is just a small snapshot of your child, so please keep that in mind. A flyer went home about the Virtual Spring book fair- please let me know if you'd like another copy.
Way to go on your midwest state presentations- we learned a lot about our geographic neighbors. Our students had so many kind compliments for our presenters!
