If you would like your child to have extra practice for the reading comprehension and math problem solving PAT please use the website below. It contains old PAT questions and it is great site for your child to practice on. This site is to be used as a review of concepts learned in class. We still have several concepts to cover in math so your child has not learned some of the material they may be asked questions on.
NOTE: Practicing for 15 – 30 minutes on this website once or twice a week is PLENTY of time and will help your child build their confidence with the types of questions that they will see in June for the reading and math provincial achievement tests.
WE ARE LEARNING SOME SPANISH FOR OUR TRIP TO PERU....
