Wednesday WOW {January 8}

I'm linking up with the fabulous ladies at Curious Firsties for their Wednesday WOW linky.

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?


  1. What a great feeling!! Congratulations to your kiddo and to you!!

  2. That's amazing how much your student retained after 18 days off. That definitely is a WOW! Thanks for sharing the link to this link party too...I will have to link up next week!

    My success would have to be starting back to school after being off for about four months for maternity leave. I miss my girls so much but it has been to get back into a routine.

    I really enjoy reading your blog so I nominated you for an award on my blog. I hope you'll come check it out!

    1, 2, Eyes On You!
