This is our Benchmark and SAT test week at school; I am soooooooooooooo glad that we are almost finished. My students have done well for these first four days, but I know from previous experience that they will have a “sag” day tomorrow. And wouldn’t you just know that the longest test is, of course, on Friday! Go figure.
Fortunately, once test week is over, we will be able to enjoy some of this beautiful spring weather that we have been having by doing other “fun” activities. We worked so hard all year not only preparing for THE TEST, but making sure that we were getting all of the standards met as well. So last Friday I decided to give them a break and get them outside to unwind for the week ahead. They loved it! The day was warm and beautiful with blue bird skies. Sidewalk poetry was the order of the day!
Just wanted to share one of the pleasures of my year as their teacher. Go check out what others are sharing for the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party.
Congratulations to my students for a successful week:)
