5 months, 7 field trips, tons of documentation and 64 hours of tutorials later: the day of true reckoning has arrived.
Please note, David (far right) and his exuberance.
I am a nervous wreck. Tomorrow is the TAKS reading test for my kids. THE test that determines whether or not they continue onto the 5th grade. It's a huge burden for a 9 year old to bear. Especially when you take into account the shoddy circumstances they found themselves in last year and the beginning of this year.
I have done the best I possibly could, considering the limited time we had. I hope it was enough!
If nothing else,this goodie bag's purpose is to sweeten them up for what is a very long day of four long, boring stories along with a good amount of analytical thinking (otherwise known as inferring). Was being a kid this hard when we were 9? Sheesh.
It goes without saying that tomorrow the G teach will be sugared up on the left over Twix bars. Self control, be damned.
