I can show that I can recognize our seventh grade set of Greek and Latin word roots. 
I can read independently.
I can show what I know about comprehending when I read.  

Today’s  Agenda for Wednesday, May 22, 2019:

1. Finish posters, if needed, and/or study for the Word Parts Test. 

2.  Take the Word Parts Test. 
         Put all study materials out of sight. 
         Be prepared with a pencil. 
         Do not mark on the test.   
         On the bubble sheet, the only marks you make should be 
                   to fill in the correct bubble for each answer. 
         When you are finished, hand in the bubble sheet 
                   to the container on Ms. Dorsey's desk.

3.  Quietly get out your group book and read on your own. -- 
              No talking until the teacher says everyone 
                  is finished with the test.  

4.  Retake the Reading Inventory in Lab 224.  
          Sit at your assigned computer. 
          Take this seriously.  You will receive points based on your results.
