Theme: Classroom Capers Day 80
As Tracy said, not a lot of capering going on these days. We are in the trenches as we prepare for the state test next week. This is not fun for the teachers, for it goes against everything we know to be natural, organic, and right about learning. And of course, it is tortuous for the students as their body language strongly suggests. Also, testing coincides with spring, so it is the *perfect* time to motivate students to read long passages and then summarize and make inferences, while the sun is shining and the birds are singing right outside the window.
Well, we do have some fun things planned for the afternoons next week, so there will be some relief.
