We finished testing today! 3 days of stress, some tears (from kiddos and from me…their teacher!), and a whole lot of encouraging notes and treats and testing is finally finished!
We started testing Monday. Everyone was so excited to come in and see the notes from home and treats from the teacher!
You can read about the letter I send home to prep parents for testing HERE!
Testing took pretty much all morning each day. In the afternoons we had our “specials,” time which only left about an hour and a half to two hours each day. We spent that time catching up on our Human Body books in science and working on our fraction animals.
This little piggy is just plain adorable!
How cute is this work in progress bunny!
It was a “whale,” of a few days of testing!
Today, I turned in my testing materials for the final time and then we celebrated!
I’m so excited that testing is finally over. I can’t wait to get back to “real,” teaching! Coming up on the agenda for the next few weeks:
1. Cursive handwriting!
2. Our annual National Monuments and Memorials project
3. Project based learning in math
What are you excited to get back to teaching? I’d love to hear your ideas! Comment and share what you will be doing to finish out the year!
