1. My students finished their state testing on Monday. They took two science tests, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. They worked hard and I am so glad it is over! Now we can enjoy the rest of the school year without "the test" hanging over our heads!
2. On Tuesday, I attended a workshop on formative assessment. We spent a lot of time talking about the importance of planning well thought out questions that let us evaluate where our students are, and what they know. It was a really great workshop, and a really good reminder.
3. Tuesday night many of my fourth graders participated in the Reading Olympics. They worked so hard and read many books The original night of the event had been post poned for over a month because of weather. They earned a blue ribbon, I'm so proud of them, all their hard work paid off!
