State Writing Test
Grabber, zinger, SVVP, and dead verbs are words you might have heard at home. Ideas, words, and strategies used to assist our students in blowing away the state writing assessment. This test will involve all students in grades 3rd-6th, but only the 5th grade work will be scored by the state and factor into the school's over all Annual Year Progress Evaluation. Please check out the writing fix link at the bottom of this blog and talk with your student about doing their best to write exciting and detailed paragraphs without using is, are, was, and were.
