Mr. Book Disciple and I celebrated 14 years of marriage on Wednesday! I can’t believe it (mostly because it makes me feel old to have been married that long!). He surprised me by getting off work early and bringing home steak and potatoes!
My students start state testing next week. Its always stressful for everyone. Its all on their iPads, so it adds the stress of technology as well! But, the test we are taking this year is much shorter (only 40 min per test)! Last year it was 90 min per test; my kids that get extra time had 135 min! They would miss 3 classes. It was awful. Plus, there were more tests with the previous assessment we used, so they had to do the 135 min test 7 different times! It was nuts. Now, there are only 4 tests. And, they don’t have to take them all the same year. My juniors are taking 1 next week, and 1 on May 1st, then they are done. The sophomores have 2 to take this year, and the Freshmen have 1. Its been so much nicer to not have to come up with ‘testing schedules’ and disrupt entire weeks of teaching. Plus, the kids get their scores back super fast (like within a week) which is great for them.
Thats pretty much all thats going on here. We have 5 weeks of school left, then I leave for Jamaica on June 4th. I have a meeting with the students I am chaperoning coming up as well. They are a sweet group of kids I am excited to spend some time with. 2 of them were with me in Europe last summer.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
