About PARCC
5th Grade PARCC dates are APRIL 23rd to MAY 1, 2018!

The ELA portion of the PARCC test is 3 days long, with a reading passage and questions, and then 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

Beginning ​​Monday, February 12​, a packet of extra credit PARCC prep will be going home with students each week until PARCC. They are expected to complete 1 page a day (short reading with 2 or 3 questions) and hand it in by the next Monday.
