Okay, so here is some kind of crazy that I am not sure anyone else can top:
Look at this picture:
or what about this one:
Can you tell what this is? It is me... a first grade teacher... preparing for TCAP- you know that end of the year test
OK... I don't mind helping out... Giving up my room... Letting a sub take my kids into a kindergarten room and letting them learn
Those pictures aren't exactly of my whole, entire room. See, I am only testing one student in my room while my firsties are taken out. But, my firsties are coming back in my room after lunch and I don't want them to not have access to our classroom library or the pocket charts we use for centers so I decided to make a baricade with butcher paper that can be put up or down when testing is and isn't happening. So, now I have butcher paper hanging from my ceiling and for the next four days I will be climbing to the ceiling every day so my kids can actually do something worthwhile- and not just want movies everyday.
Is that not crazy?!? I think this is crazy and am surprised I am not going crazy! Is anyone else's testing schedule/security measures just absolutely bonkers??
In other news... isn't this adorable?
Chick-fil-a had family night tonight (yay to free kids meals) and it was a princess theme! Addie Mae got to meet "Tangled" (she can't say Rapunzel). She also met Ariel. So sweet!
I am so glad we got to have a family night after the long day of blue butcher paper at school.
Testing starts tomorrow- so I think I will get some sleep :) Nighty night-
