It will be imperative for students to be good readers and good listeners in class so that they can do well on the final written test and AR test We will work on story elements and vocabulary from James, in class. If we finish the book, the test Friday will cover the main concepts of the whole novel. Try asking your child what they read in class and get him/her to retell it to you over dinner.
