STAR benchmark testing
Curious, does anyone on here use STAR benchmark testing for reading and math with renaissance learning?
We started it in the high school today and I’m intrigued by the scores I am seeing. I am curious as to your thoughts and experiences. If you’d rather express yourself privately, my inbox is open.
What are your thoughts?
Review game for our final. My students are loving it. Using the ball (which I labeled after the picture) to choose topics. Simple, fast, good review, no competition.
Swearing in the classroom
I said “holy shit” in front of my students to make a point about the tragedy of the holocaust and one student freaked out so much that he fell out of his seat.
myfacewasred said: Just wanted to say "YAY! Us first years are almost jaded and finished!" I hope the next couple of weeks fly by for you, but not so quickly that you miss out on the wonderful bits that are coming. :)
Thank you! I so needed this boost of motivation. It’s so incredible how fast this year has gone.
Three more Sundays.
Two for me, one of which is actually a Monday.
So jealous. Not including today, three more Sundays and a Monday….June 18 is still so far away!
Mentally I’m making it closer than it is. This week is a full week, next week is a 4 day…
23 more days (taking a personal day or it would be 24), 4 more Sundays (one is a Monday) and a teacher work day after students leave. Sooner, please. So tired.
This time next week, I’m done.
10 days of teaching (2 days off next week for my sister’s wedding), 11 work days total. I can hardly believe it.
18 days of teaching.
2 paperwork/grading/cleaning days.
I think I might actually finish my first year alive!
Four Sundays and a Monday.
The fourth Sunday is before graduation though so I won’t have any students, just need to pack and grade.
Two field trips and field day in there. Come to me, June 23rd, please.
