This past week is now a blur.
Not because it went by fast.
No, because it went by INCREDIBLY slow.
It was test prep week.
Yes, I did my best to make it fun for the kiddos, I really REALLY did!
They were ecstatic to play “SCOOT” with my ELA CCS Pack Task Cards, and they loved making our test taking strategies booklets and silly strategies..
It’s still test review.. and we still had to do some quick “practice” tests.
To motivate them and “reward them” I had a “donut standardized test” on Friday. They LOVED it! Just this little motivation and destressing spark had them excited and ready for the test! One student told me “Mrs. Cap, I am most excited for Tuesday because I know I am going to ROCK the test!” (I say that all of the time so it was great to hear them believing it!)
I am going to show you my pictures from the week here because my Five for Friday and Friday Flashback was a little overloaded with images, I think!
So though it was long, the students became motivated and I feel we’re ready for next week! Bring on the test 🙂
