Kids are working hard. They are reading and reading and reading. They are answering questions and wondering if they can really eat the mint I just gave them.
Everything else has come sliding to a full stop. I am done each day by 3 in the afternoon but after standing since 7 am I not much good to any one. I come home and try reading but the words all blend into one large black dot in the middle of the page. I want to garden but we are still dealing with grey skies that send snow flakes down every few minutes so planting just can’t happen yet. (Maybe Thursday – I hear we are suppose to hit 70 degrees.) I kept looking at my knitting but it seems like just to much detail after the day of keeping track of 300 kids testing.
Blogging even seems hard tonight.
Yikes, I have got to get my testing stamina up just like the kids! We have three more weeks to go – finishing reading this week, on to science next week then math and May brings us to our little testers.
Oh the joys of education!
Summer will come and we will all run, swim, garden, read, sleep and spend some time learning about the world around us! Hang in there testers!
