Weekly Recap - The Good and the Bad

This week flew by. First of all, it was only four days. (Thank you Casimir Pulaski!) Second, we had PARCC three of those days. I'm still glad it's the weekend though!

PARCC Testing - I HATE these tests! They last us a whole week (7 days, not a school week) with one test each day. My students do not have the stamina to focus on these tests. I don't blame them, because I do not have the stamina for them either! 

Testing - Surprised that I put that here? I am choosing to look at the positives of testing. My planning for the week was lessened greatly! I also took the testing as an opportunity to get steps on my Fitbit! I like to do laps around the computer lab. To vary it up, I do figure eights and change direction quite a bit. By the end of testing today, I had over 8,000 steps! I was even able to leave early each day since I didn't have much grading or prep work at all! 

Reilly Visits - My former student, Reilly (from my first year of teaching), came back to visit my students. He brought pizza and his new book too! My students adore him. They shared their books they have written for him. I'm so proud of him!
