Parent Toolkit information for FAQs and tips with sites to help prepare students for NWEA tests

I Touch /NWEA/MCA Test Preparation Notebook Information


If your child does not have an I Touch:

 then they should work on any of the sites listed on our class website under MCA/NWEA Prep which are listed down below on this page.
Besides the numerous test prep sites available for your child to access she/he should also work on learning the fourth grade MCA math vocabulary words using the Maths Dictionary link.
Your child should pay attention especially to the Language Arts and Math moodle on this site to do the interactive games and activities to help build and reinforce skills. Students can check off what activities they have completed with the packets provided for Language Arts and Math.



I Touch Information when your child brings home an I Touch 
 

The I Touch program is designed to reinforce skills needed to be mastered by fourth graders.
These skills are directly related to the MCA and NWEA tests.
Your child’s I Touch/MCA NWEA Test Prep folder should contain the following:
Study Partner packets for math and language arts with Checkoff sheet

Khan Academy Packet for Math
I Touch Videos Master List Checklist booklet.

Some children have very specific packets to work on designed by me for their special needs.
 

What your child should do with the I Touch:


1.        Work on Study Partner Videos in Language Arts and Math Packets. Answer the questions in the packet and have a parent correct.
2.        Work on Khan Academy Videos in Math, do the worksheet, and have a parent correct.
3.        Work on other videos listed in the I Touch Videos Master List Checklist Booklet.
4.         Use any of the other subject area apps on the I Touch.
5.        Ideally, parents should assist their child in watching the video and answering the questions together, but at the least a parent will need to correct the student’s work.
6.        Remember, the user of the I Touch is ultimately responsible to replace it if it is lost, broken, or stolen.

This booklet should remain in the KOALA and be carried back and forth to class. I will periodically check in with students to monitor their progress.

Any other questions or suggestions then please contact me at mbrown@edenpr.org
