Hey y'all...after 3 days of administering our lovely STAAR test..I am 12 kinds of exhausted..but delighted it is finally over! I'm sure all that hard work is going to pay off beautifully. ;)
This is what got me through the day...
Yes...coffee and FUN DAY! We had fun day in the morning...only in the morning because it's been too dang hot in the afternoon...think 105 degrees hot! Wowie! And it's still April...can you imagine July and August? Scorchers for sure!
In the afternoon..I started DRA testing with my little darlings..so proud of them..they are doing awesome.
On another note...
Learning Resources has a fabulous teacher grant that you should definitely check out...here's a little info to get you started.
Learning Resources announces the sponsorship of a teacher grant hosted by WeAreTeachers. To apply, teachers must answer this question: “How would you use portable interactive technology to create collaborative lessons?” After the application process concludes, educators can invite colleagues to vote for their favorite lesson ideas. Each of the three top vote getters will win a set of three now!Boards and three GeoSafari Tuff Cams, a prize package valued at $2,000. Additionally, two merit-based winners selected by a panel of teachers will each win one now!Board and one GeoSafari Tuff Cam, a total value of $700. Teachers can apply for the grant online through May 22, 2012.
