Two out of six days of state testing are completed. That isn’t my celebration. Because we aren’t half way there yet. My celebration is how we prepared for the states test the days prior. Guess what? Nothing changed in our classroom. Reading, writing and word study continued as if there wasn’t a ELA test Thursday and Friday of this week. We wrote together, read intriguing picture books together because we finished our class read aloud, City of Ember. We celebrated with watching the move which is PG in class after our principal gave permission and the parents had to agree also The students brought in pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, snacks and drinks; We had a party the day before testing. Life didn't change this week in Room 234. I am always thankful to join in the celebrations from the week. Nothing is better than sharing and reading about friend's celebrations. Thanks Ruth for encouraging us to celebrate here.
|Happy Learners in Rm. 234|
