Testing This Week

This week we begin our state testing.  Washington State fourth graders spend a day each in reading and math.  They spend two days writing first a narrative and then an expository piece.

At this point our state does not use these scores to evaluate teachers.  I know this makes me less stressed and therefore my students are less stressed.

I don't overemphasize the tests in my teaching.  I want my students to do well.  I look at this as an opportunity to teach them how to take standardized tests.  They are not going away.
