We reviewed for the test today - which included giving a question that may be the test's essay as the bellwork. Overall, the students did a good job answering the question, though I'll probably be more specific in what I ask come Tuesday.
If you want to see how your child responded, you should check out the review guide. The essay is on one side, the review guide on the other.
In case they forgot the review guide, I'm posting it as a picture on here. Click on it to enlarge.
I would suggest studying this for about 5-10 minutes each night over the weekend. Quiz each other over the questions - see what you know, what you don't know. If there's anything you don't understand, make a note of it and ask on Monday. The test is Tuesday.
You can get the extra credit if you study with an adult for 5-10 minutes Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. (Lets face it, you should probably be doing this anyway.) If you've done this, write the following statement on a scrap piece of paper: "27 years is a long time to spend in a South African jail."
Have a great weekend. If you're following basketball I hope your bracket is everything you dreamed it would be.
