We have the NYS Social Studies Test Wednesday and Thursday. If you get a chance take a look at Oswego's Website which will provide for a great chance to review the third and fourth grade material while at home.
Click on the following link to get there Studyzone
Once there click on "Elementary Test Prep"
Then click on "Social Studies"
Then choose "multiple choice questions for Grade 3 or Grade 4"
Once you choose a grade level there will be a couple of categories to choose from as a way to review the material.
A wonderful feature that is embedded in this website is the "Need Some Help With This Question" button. If students cannot remember the answer they can click there to read for the answer.
We have no school on Tuesday but when we return on Wednesday morning we will have Part I and Part II of the NYS Social Studies Test. Part I will consists of 35 multiple choice questions and Part II will be short responses.
Part III will be on Thursday morning and the students will have 90 minutes to answer 5-7 Document Based Questions then write an essay based on those documents.
We have been working very hard in class and the students are well prepared to write these essays.
