Testing Week almost over...

Here's a picture of one of the best number scrolls done yesterday.



Whew!!

Testing week is almost over. We will get back to our usual routines next week. This change in routines is surprisingly difficult for a class of kindergartners, especially the students whose social/emotional/psychological resilience is low. Today we had a substitute for Mrs. Everson, so the need for structure was high.

We did okay. There was one rough moment when a student had a meltdown, but I guess that's how it is these days. Meltdowns happen in kindergarten as they do in nuclear power plants.....

There were at least three high points of the day as well.

Mark came for his art lesson. He wisely abandoned a challenging art lesson in favor of a group drawing experience. Here you can see the kids at work on a shelf paper drawing.



And here a bit of the same drawing on display in the room.



Hannah mastered the Soundabet Boy words:




And Jackson mastered the Queen's lowercase cards.




Three homers and one out.

If this were baseball we'd be batting .750 today.

Not even Lou Gehrig could match that average for very long.
