LAKE WALES – Polk Avenue Elementary families gathered last week (Feb. 6) for a fun family night focused on FCAT testing resources and strategies for students.
After an overview from teachers about what to expect on the FCAT Writes test at the end of February, children and adults played “Who Wants to be a Writer?” based on the popular game show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”
PHOTO #1: Fourth grade teacher Sydney Mercado (standing, back to camera) read the question on the screen, while audience members in the school’s Media Center discussed possible answers.
Later, audience members played a game of “Jeopardy!” about test information and strategies. Parents and students worked together (PHOTO #2 and PHOTO #3) to learn information about the FCAT tests.
