AJK Cadets Talking About Their MAP Growth

Joshua5th Grade Cadet Joshua Reynoso

I grew 29 points on my winter MAP Math test. I feel good about that because I didn’t know if I could do it. When I told my parents they said congratulations. I grew because I was paying attention in Math class and we’re adding fractions and that helped me because most of the questions were about adding fractions. My advice to other Cadets so they can show growth is to pay attention in Math class and listen to the teachers.

 

Nevaeh3rd Grade Cadet Nevaeh Roberson

I grew 36 points on my winter MAP Math test. I was excited because I never grew that much before. I’m very, very proud of myself. Ms. Kaplan was so excited for me that we interrupted Mr. Grenda’s meeting so we could tell him how many points I grew. Mr. Grenda said, “Wow!” and everyone else in the room said, “Wow!” Then Mr. Grenda told me that he was going to take me to the Medieval Market. I grew so much because my teacher said that the MAP test was coming up so I went home and I studied a lot. I studied multiplication, addition, subtraction, division, and fractions. My advice to other Cadets so they can show growth is to study hard instead of playing. So, after school change your clothes and then instead of going outside, stay inside and study.

 

Shamya4th Grade Squire Shamya Cook

I grew 24 points on my winter MAP Math test and 25 points on my Reading test. I felt really excited and very, very proud of myself. My teacher, he was very thankful, very happy, and very proud of me. He said he was going to do something for me. I hope he’s going to let me get some more pizza because I love pizza. When I went home my mom was proud of me and she took me out bowling and out for pizza. I was able to grow because I was listening and understanding and some of the times already know the basics. My advice to other Cadets so they can show growth too is to focus and to understand the topics.

 

Armani3rd Grade Squire Armani King

I grew 24 points on my winter MAP Reading test. I felt great because I thought I was going to fail, but I did great! My teacher said, “No, you didn’t.” Then she surprised me and said, “Yes, you did.” She was proud of me! When I got home I told my mom and she was proud of me too. I was able to grow because I took my time, I stay focused, and I read all of the passages. When my friend tried to talk to me I just ignored her and I stayed concentrating. My advice to other Cadets so they can show growth too, is just take your time and do your best.

 

Jazzaty4th Grade Squire Jazzaty Bailey

I grew 38 points on my winter MAP Reading test. I felt happy and proud of myself because I usually don’t grow that many points in Reading. My teacher was happy like really, really happy and she said we needed to celebrate because she was so happy. When I told my mom and dad they were happy and proud too. I got to go to the mall for a special treat. I was able to grow because when I’m in class I don’t feel like I can do stuff, but my teacher makes me feel like I can do things. I asked my teacher to give me some things to study and she did so I could practice my reading. My advice to other Cadets so they can show growth too, is to study, read more, and participate in class.

 

Robbie4th Grade Sentinel Robbie Green

I grew 30 points on my winter MAP Math test. I was really excited because I have never grown that high before. My teacher was so excited she waved her hands around all excited. When I told my mom she was happy that I grew 30 points. She was just super excited that I grew 30 points. I was able to grow because I just studied. On the test, some of the questions were really easy so I got them right. There were some multiplication problems so I studied my multiplication facts. My advice to other Cadets so they can show growth too is to listen when your teacher is at the board, and just do what’s right.

 

Alejandro4th Grade Squire

I grew 26 points on my winter MAP Reading test and 23 points on my Math test. I was excited because I grew more than my fall scores. I was really proud of myself. My teacher was excited too. He was happy and he told me that he’s going to work with me more so I can grow even more! When I told my parents they were excited and they were happy about me! We got to go to Buffalo Wild Wings as a treat! I was able to grow because I studied in my classroom and I studied at my house. I studied division, my times tables, fractions, and I went to the library and I got a big book and read it. My advice for other Cadets so they can grow too is to keep studying so you can grow.
