I feel like I have nothing interesting going on right now...but lots of testing anxiety instead!
Testing is two weeks away. The C.R.C.T. is being revamped for the Common Core, but we don't really know what that will look like. Yet my 4th graders must still pass all five sections of the test, and I feel like I am leading them blindly into a sandstorm! I know passing will not be a problem for most of my students, but there are a couple hangers on that can go either way. We are also all about exceeding at my school...and I feel like this year my scores could potentially be disappointing although I have been working my tail off!
So I am prepping, prepping, prepping them with good test taking strategies and finding the most complex C.R.C.T.-like questions I can find. I feel I'm cramming it all in...so not a good feeling!
