Testing Week Two
This week we finish our state testing. I thought I would show you a picture of the poster we created with our Endurance and Encouragement slips. (Click here to read the original post about Endurance and Encouragement. The Encouragement slips here are a Google Doc.) I am using the poster to cover some of the anchor charts the students can't see while they are testing.
Our testing is going okay. I tell my students in advance that they will hear me say:
"I'm sorry I can't answer that question."
"Read the directions to yourself. I trust you to make a good choice."
"Make sure you check every page and answer every question."
When we were done testing for the day last Wednesday, one of my students asked if I was back to being their teacher now. It's a good description of my role.
On an unrelated note, I took some time this weekend to finish two new writing genre units: Writing Historical Fiction and Writing Science Fiction. They are both available in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
