    We haven't even started yet! We test April 14-18, so I'm just now gearing up for the heavy test prep. :) I still can't wait until it's over though!!!

    We just started today and have it all week. :crosseyed I'm not high stakes at 5th grade, but it's still a huge test. It's time consuming and we can't do anything while they test. We have to sit there and watch. That makes some loooooooooong hours.

    Our whole school had to adjust lunch and special area times for a two week window, all because of the testing.

    We finished the ISTEP in September. We'll be starting the NWEA next month. Luckily, the kids take it on the computer.

    The joy is just beginning tomorrow.

    We had the Writing test a month ago, but we're going to have Reading and Math for the next three days and Monday/Tuesday of next week.

    I didn't realize so many states broke the testing apart. We've always done it in one lump sum.

    Three more days to go, unless you're a fifth grade teacher and giving the FCAT Science next Wednesday. Ahhhhhhhhhh. At least tomorrow is the only day of Math SSS. NRT's are next week. The kids are troopers, but they are exhausted and a few are disgruntled.

    PSSA Reading and Math are in two weeks. The Science PSSA is at the end of April. This is our first year testing in Science. I wish ours was over.

    Yippee!!! Last day (day 8 of testing) tomorrow. Our kids only tackle one session/day so it drags it out for 8 days. The kids have been so good. I'm happy for them (and for myself) that it's just about over. Now we can move on to some fun activities.

    State Testing

    State testing is never over. We just finished our 2nd of 3 science unit district tests. Q3 district math testing begins in a few weeks. 2 weeks after that our state testing begins. That takes place in May. Our CST's take place the second week of May. At least we are in a 2 week testing lull after spring break.

    I thought our testing was too early, but I guess not. We haven't even started yet. Spring break next week (YEA!!!!), then 7 days of review time and testing starts Wednesday April 23rd. We test W-F and then M-Tu. I can't wait till it's over, although 4th grade is not an important year in GA. 3rd and 5th are pass or no promotion years, but not 4th.
