Done!


We are done testing. Woohoo! I can now just simply teach. I can go off script, I stop worrying about how to pull six 100 pound bodies around my little small group table and go over skills.....because it works so well with first graders! 

We are going to go deeply into a novel study. We are going to spend afternoons in the middle ages, pretending we are kings and queens, knights and damsels. Math will take us into volume and area. I am excited again. Those tests really seem to chip away at what makes us so damned good.

Oh, I am so jealous. That is the best feeling and now teaching is how it should be.

Congratulations! What a great feeling! Our testing is this week, and I unfortunately have to administer it to a student. Two days of writing sub plans for me. :(
