1. Testing, Testing
We finished up MAP testing this week and I'm pretty sure my students heaved a collective sigh of relief when I told them it was over. They did an awesome job for the most part. So proud of them.
2. Crazy, Crazy
This month has been a real crazy one (thankful it's also short!). Last week was a full moon and this week...who knows? Cabin fever maybe? Pretty sure we were all climbing walls yesterday afternoon.
3. Valentine's, Valentine's
I love Valentine's Day as a teacher. It's so fun. This year I had LOTS of visits from former students with cards, trinkets and small gifts. My current students were getting a little jealous (and I had an embarrassingly huge pile by the end of the day). Life is better with chocolate.
4. WIDA, WIDA
WIDA is a test for ELL students. Imagine my surprise (and their delight) when they took the listening portion this week and it had fraction stuff....we have been doing fractions in math! Woot!
5. Misc, Misc
(sorry I was trying to keep with the pattern!)
The Husband and I are going out for Valentine's Day. Like...out, out. Staying out. This has not happened in...ever. I'm really excited to have a real date night...alas it is snowy, nasty and super cold (like -30 predicted) so we shall see if our plans are thwarted.
