Enf of the year testing...and other things

Well, have not blogged in awhile because I have been bogged down with end of the year assessments. I have been testing all day, and then bring home test to average scores. My kids take 6 different assessments at the end of the year. It takes nearly forever to test 19 kids on 6 different tests. Not to mention, they lose interest about the first time I test them. Obviously I don't give all 6 at the same time, but none the less they really do not enjoy them. Everyday this week my head has just been pounding.

Friday we are going to the zoo! I cant wait! My kids have been counting down the days since the beginning of May when they could see it on the calendar. I am hoping any rain stays away so we can have a good day!

The flood waters took awhile to recede in Nashville. We missed two days of school, while some districts missed a week or more. So many peoples lives were changed. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

I blogged back in February about my college roommate who passed away from cystic fibrosis ( if you want to check out her story- well Saturday we are walking at the zoo in her memory and to raise money for the cause. I am excited with a way to remember her each year.

2 more full weeks of school...I can make it- maybe.


  1. What are the name of the assessments you give? Are they in-house? That is an awful lot of testing for young children to be subjected to...sheesh!

    You can make it sweet are almost there!!!

  2. We give Brigance, Dibels (but it has three individual test) 86 sight Words, and Concepts of Print...its madness.
