I teach third grade and we just finished our first round of practice tests for the upcomming SOL tests in May. I have idnetified 3 main areas my whole class is really struggling with. They have a hard time picking the main idea for a given selection, summarizing and identifying fact or opinion. My problem is that the other teachers I work with are weak in the exact areas (we all missed the same questions on the test). I feel like I go over these things everyday with each of our reading stories but it is obviously not enough. Does anyone have any suggestions what I can be doing differently with my class?
