A Small Slice

What a day!  We have our state testing next week, and it's crunch time at our school.  We didn't pass last year so we're under a lot of pressure to make AYP.  All year long, we've been practicing test-taking strategies, providing after school tutoring, and collecting data to monitor student progress. Stakes are high for us this year, and with only a few days left before the test, tension is growing.  I've been going since 5:00 AM, and I still have laundry to fold and a dishwasher to empty.  So, I'm going to keep this slice short.

I just read all the kind comments on the slice I shared yesterday.  Thank you for your encouraging words.   I'm so glad I joined the SOL community!  I just wish I had time to read more slices every day. I try to read as many as I can because every one of you have something interesting to share. Now, I'm off to make a cup of tea and see what you've been up to today!


  1. Isn't it sad when so much work gets done for one test? Sometimes I just wish they would let us teach!

    Hoping next week goes well and the kids show how smart they are!

  2. Ditto everything Queen Bee said. Rest well tonight, and enjoy your tea.

  3. We started state testing today in Indiana--one day down. Good luck to you next week. A cup of tea always does the trick--so many flavors now!!

  4. Don't apologize for a short post, time is precious. The important thing is you did write.
