The advice I would give to next years fourth graders is that you should pay attention during class so that when you do the practice ELA you won't be scared. So when you take the real ELA you won't be scared. You should also think positive when you are taking the ELA and you should think like that for all tests that you take. Other strategies you should use is to get a good nights sleep on the days that you are taking it and to eat a nice healthy breakfast. These are the things that I used when I took the ELA and they worked out just fine for me.

MY advice to the 3rd graders for the ELA is to read carefully and also check your work a lot. You should also listen and write a lot of notes down for the 2nd ELA. For the third one you should really think about the last puestion's answer. And if your in Mr. Dugger's class you should pay attention when your doing practice ELA books.

Caution! Get ready get set! the ELA! Oh my gosh! If your acting like that about the ELA, don't worry. I think you have to study every ELA test book at least three times each week if you want to do good. You could ask your mom or dad to make their very own kind of ELA test. Or, you should ask your parents to ask your teacher to make a copy of an ELA test from last year. If you think that really helped you do good on the ELA test, comment about it. Say if you felt much better, or you don't think it helped at all. Thanks for checking out my blog! =D Be sure to check out my other blogs when you have the time. Thanks!

So from Monday through Wednesday my class took the English Language Arts test. The advice I would give the next 4th graders is just don't be nervous and just go through the test. At the end of the test you might think it was easy, fair, or hard.

Hey! Don't worry about the ELA test. It is as easy as the third grade ELA test. You will get prepared in no time. Besides, get a little nervous. It is good. I mean it! If your nervous, you are more serious about it. Before you no it, you will go through the test with flying colors! Good luck on your ELA test.

I thought that the ELA test was fair to me because in Mr. D's class we did a lot of practice tests from the last few years and it was also easy to me. Thanks for reading! Michelle

The advice I would give to a fourth grade student next year is to eat a big breakfast, read at least 40 minutes a day before the test and bring a number 2 pencil. The ELA test was both easy and hard.

The past three days my class and classes around New York State have been taking the 4th grade New York State English Language Arts test. My advice to kids who are taking it next year is just relax. If you're to pressured and nervous you'll get too scared and not do your best. All teachers will get you so prepared that you'll be so ready and you'll fly through it easily ( if you do still be careful and check). On the listening part be careful and listen. If you have to take notes don't write your best because you have to go slightly fast, just right good enough to read it. I don't want to give you too much or you might  figure out the answers. HaHa!!! I bet if your taking this test next year you'll do awesome!*!!*!

I was prepared for the ELA test. I had many practices. I was ready. I was nervous, but I lived through it! My most disliked book was book two, because they dont give you the text. It was an ok fair test because some parts are easier than walking 5 steps, but some are harder than 1/4 of a mile in 1 minute!

My ELA advice for the fourth graders of 2009 & 2010 is,



1. Always triple check your answers and don't rush.



2. On the test when you don't have the text and the teacher reads it to you always take notes and listen carefully, and watch out for the short response and the SA qestions.



3. And this the most importint thing of all is NEVER CHEAT because if your teacher catches you you get a BIG ZERO!!!



GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU FOURTH GRADERS NEXT YEAR ON THE ELA.

Hi! I wouldn't be worried next year. Mr. Dugger will get you ready. It was about what I expected. The book 3 today was kind of hard, but not too much. I wouldn't be worried next year. Mr. D. will get you ready!

This is my advice about the ELA.

1. Read the story and the questions carefully.

2. It doesn't matter if you are the last one to finish.

3.If there is a hard question look back at the story or your notes to find the answer.

4. Don't get overwhelmed about the ELA!



Oh yeah and get lots of sleep the night before.

For the ELA test, the skills that you need are to be a good writer and you can't waste time. If you run out of time don't panic.and if you are confused, sometimes the teacher can help you, but not always.

My advice for next year's fourth grade class is just to listen to your teacher and do not be scared but it is o.k to be nervous but do not panic. There is no use to panic with Mr. Dugger because he is the best teacher there is!

Love,

Anastasia

The ELA is a very important test. You have to prepare for it by reading and writing. Every night after I would read, I would write about it. This helped me to write an essay. I also think you have to go to bed early and eat a good breakfast. This will help you concentrate.



GOOD LUCK FOURTH GRADERS OF 2010!!!
