One of my colleagues remarked on Friday that we have just 9 Fridays left. That surprised me. I have been so busy preparing for the standardized tests that I have
barely looked up to see the sunlight or smell the flowers! The fourth grade students just took the math and reading state tests last week (two down) and we will take the science state assessments this coming week (one to go). I probably won't exhale until my students finish the last question on the last test next Friday.
