3rd Grade NeSA Parent NightHave you ever wondered what Nebraska State Accountability (NeSA) tests look like? Because third grade is the first grade level in which Nebraska students experience NeSA testing, Calvert third grade teachers have decided to share some practice tests and testing tips with the parents of their students on:
Thursday, February 26, 2015 from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. at Calvert Elementary School.During the event, parents and their third graders will be able to view typical NeSA test questions by actually taking practice tests in reading and math. Teachers will also share test-taking strategies that may be discussed and practiced at home. Teachers have found that students typically strive to do better when parents have a general understanding of testing procedures and then engage in discussions about the upcoming tests.
The Parent Night has been designed to ensure parents/guardians attend with their third grade students. (Students may not attend without a parent or guardian.) Additionally, teachers ask parents not to bring younger and older sisters and brothers. Childcare will not be provided.
Parent Night information sheets and sign up forms will be delivered in student communication folders on February 6 and 13. If parents and students are able to attend, teachers ask students return the sign up form to the child’s teacher by Wednesday, February 18, 2015.
Teachers anticipate the event to be filled with fun and learning. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
