I am so very, very grateful to have moved out of third grade (a testing year) back down to second grade (NOT a testing year!). The pressure on students AND teachers in testing grades is absolutely ridiculous.
Since testing is right around the corner for many, I thought I would go back and share a little recap of past blog posts. Since I am not doing standardized testing this year, I have no fresh ideas but maybe this will help take a little sting out of testing.
