Should I stay or should I go?

I wonder, after seeing my post’s title, how many people are singing The Clash’s popular tune. I sure am. 😀

The reason for today’s post is for me to see how many people are utilizing the information on the site — if I should keep this site up. 

If this site is used by folks, it’ll stay. If it’s not, well, I think it’s time to go. 

So…

No stay comments = this site will be gone in November. 

 

Illinois Assessment of Readiness – Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy

There are readiness practice tests for grades 3-8.  To view them, click HERE!
At the top of the page, you’ll see two boxes — (left) English Language Arts/Literacy & (right) Mathematics. Click on one of the green rectangle boxes. A new page will open with the various grades, select the one that applies to you. 

You can give the test(s) over the computer or you can print them off. There is an answer key as well. It’s found under Grade (#) Resources. 🙂

I’ll be giving my child each test the beginning and end of the school year. I want to track her progress.

Sixth-Grade Resource Books

Below is a compiled list of books for your sixth-grader. You don’t have to purchase all the books, just giving you options! 

If your child is in another grade, you can easily find their appropriate grade level on Amazon as well. I’m only sharing sixth-grade learning resources because that’s the grade I’ll be teaching this school year (20-21).  

Remember: You don’t have to purchase all the books, just giving you options!
