Today we have a full on practice TAKS test. In part to just practiced the security measures for the test. The kids were griping about not having specials today, and appointed out to some of them that this is a lot better than the way we used to do it. We used to have a test every week starting the first week of school. There was startled 0.5 problems of progressively get longer. By this time of the year third through fifth grade would be missing one day specials a week for a full on practice test. Starting in February they would miss two days of specials to practice test.
They’re having some longer tests but they do not have to miss specials. Instead their specials get swapped to the end of the day. The grade level that has PEP has specials during bat grade levels time. Our teachers and students have been working hard, they deserve to do well the state tests.
