Today was our first day back from Winter Break. After two weeks of break, we had 2 snow days with a 2 hour delay on top of that today. It was good to be back into somewhat of a routine. The kids were very laid back and quiet today (that in itself is a WOW!).
Our benchmark assessments are due next Thursday, so I figured I better get started today because it is also report card time and all the regular weekly assessments still exist too. I started with a "middle of the road" kiddo...or so I thought. She WOWed me when she met our end of the year benchmark!! Way to go, kiddo! I was one happy teacher. I felt really good about it being after break and knowing that she had those skills down solid to have retained them over 18 days off.
It was a great way to start our short week back and made me excited to continue testing tomorrow.
What are your successes this week?
