I felt bad that I had to test them when there were having so much fun, but I need to get over my disdain for testing (or maybe not). That is one part of teaching I just can't make myself enjoy; standardized testing is just torture. There are so many other ways to assess students, I don't need them to memorize facts and fill in bubbles thankyouverymuch. I do, however, understand that these tests are used to ensure that all children are receiving a quality education. But in reality they create an environment of stress, and teachers end up having to teach to the test. And what does that really accomplish? Oh well, I don't have time to keep ranting, I'll do that later I'm sure.
Here are a few pictures from this Sunday.
