  • Below “grade levels” choose “6th grade”.
  • Students will take a Unit Test, on various Mondays (TBA).  Their first test will cover “Unit 1” words, and is scheduled on September 8th .
  • In order to be prepared for the test, you should complete as many of the practice tests as possible.  Try to practice with one online test per night rather than cramming the night before.
  • One of the following test results needs to be emailed to me by 8:00 AM on Monday morning (prior to the test): Learning Definitions, Vocabulary Sentences, or Synonym Practice. Only send me results of 100%.  So keep trying until you have perfect results.
  • If you cannot possibly use a computer or device at home, public library, or at a friend or relatives house, let me know right away so I can get you access at school during homeroom or after lunch.
