About PARCC
5th Grade PARCC dates are not yet available. You will know as soon as we do!

The ELA portion of the PARCC test is 3 days long, with a reading passage, questions, and one writing task each day. The writing tasks are Narrative (story), Literary Analysis (comparing two texts), and Research Simulation (like a mini research project). 

Currently, we are practicing for PARCC by learning PARCC 1-2-3. This means:
1 Text = Narrative
2 Texts = Comparison
3 Texts = Research

PARCC measures a student's ability to read and comprehend grade-level texts, understand vocabulary, analyze what they read, and write in a way that responds to the texts they read. We practice these skills everyday in our class.

In the Spring, your students will have the opportunity for more practice should it be necessary.
