In my school district, we start our state testing next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I have blogged and voiced my concerns about the state tests. I was thinking about state testing and for some reason idioms came to mind. My apologies for not a typical poem but thought it might be fun to share.
I throw my hat into the wind as testing starts next week.
I had a major chip on my shoulder however I know this test is a drop in the bucket when I reflect on my students' learning this year.
My hope would be that my parent community realizes a picture paints a thousand words and their child's picture has been a work of art since September and will continue to be painted through the end of May.
I hope my students hit the hay early and don't get up on the wrong side of the bed the morning of the tests.
I predict my students will break a leg and go the extra mile on their 2 and 4 pt. responses. They need to go for broke as well and use their loaf.
By the way I will enjoy testing when pigs fly!
Best of luck to all students who are taking states tests next week and congratulations to all the teachers who have gone above and beyond in preparing their classes!!
