Two weeks and counting to TEST TIME

Wonderful set of test taking posters from one extra degree  that I turned into a ppt.  I took a screenshot of each poster and then made each a slide.  this way we can discuss and cuss each strategy.  Looking forward to April 9th :)

Spring Break

Shouldn't spring break be at least a week long??  I guess I should't complain...Thursday, Friday, and then the weekend.

Shouldn't spring break mean traveling somewhere?

So what does my spring break look like???

  • cleaning out some 'old'  clothes, shoes, and school 'stuff'
  • organizing the toy room--mostly getting all the legos off the floor and into containers
  • working on 'I Can' objectives.  Lucky for me, there are only 12 tested standards for Nebraska 4th graders in reading.  The state test is quickly approaching!
Happy Spring Break to anyone out there enjoying this time.

PBiS Rally

The last Friday of every month finds our school having a PBiS rally to acknowledge all the zero heroes, readers, and any other academic achievements...  This month the 3rd graders started dancing and the affect was a flash mob dancing.  Video of the fun event.
