The last day of school is June 10, but since summer school is cancelled, practice tests are open during summer.

Geometry Practice Test in Think Central should be done by June 1.

SBAC equivalent practice is open to complete by June 1.

The Geometry Post test is optional and open to complete by July for kids who want to redo the test.

SBAC equivalent post test is optional and open to complete by mid August for kids who want to redo the test.

We did all the SBAC practice tests in the workbook during the school year except the last 2.

We did the SB87 End of the Year test in April.

The only test left is the end of the year performance test page SB95- 104.

The more math practice, the better.

Many kids are doing Khan Academy instead to watch the videos. Some are doing both online and paper.

In volume 2 of Math Expressions-

May is Geometry section 6

June is Word Problems section 5

That will complete the workbook (which can also be done during summer).

March was section 4 place value

April was section 7 fractions
