I have a friend who for two days in a row has walked out of the classroom for lunch without his lunchbox. I had a friend today who cried three times. I had a friend who farted in class. I had a friend last week who sneezed and farted at the same time. I had a friend last week who just discovered that holding your tongue while saying "ship" sounds just like the s-word. Really?

Uh...Is It Over Yet?

Everyone is done and my class is no exception. We had a writing test this week and unfortunately everything that we have talked about over the year has apparently flown out of their heads. I. Am. Happy. That was a complete sentence. That was a complete, detailed sentence. No, class that was a hot mess. How many days until summer?

Post TAKS Reality

It is over. The back to back tests are done. Now we wait for the results. We have 5 more weeks of school and they are filled with activities. It feels like we now have time to work on fun things and not just teach to the test. I have am taking a deep breath and hope for the best results.
