Grace will have to take the California Achievement Test at the end of next year which will be her 6th grade year. Our state requires us to take a test every three years beginning in 3rd grade but we don't have to turn in the results. Kind of crazy, huh! Anyway a teacher friend of mine emailed me a sight to find out what types of questions might be on the 6th grade version. I just looked at everything and I am freaking out! Every math problem is a word problem, and half of the questions like: probability, geometry, and algebraic equations we haven't even learned at all yet. The history/social science questions mostly focused on ancient history and we have be in depth in American history for the past 1 1/2 year and still have one more year to go. I already have our year planned out and don't really want to change it. What to do?!
