We had our Math STAAR testing today. Yuck! It is as though the people that make the rules for all of these have never been in a classroom. I don't even want to get into it, but I am glad that one day is down. It was a long and painful day! The testing lasted from 8:30 am until 2:10 pm. Kids can't move or talk. They even have to eat lunch in the testing room. Tomorrow is the reading. After that we will be done for the year. I get so stressed and nervous about this testing! I don't want to mess anything up and kids are unpredictable and tend to make careless mistakes during the directions because they do not listen. Anyways...I could go on and on complaining for hours, so I will stop there.
My back is really sore from standing/walking all day, so I don't foresee much physical activity this afternoon. I just need to get through tomorrow and then I can focus on me a little more maybe.
