So the TAKS is over...

Standardized tests...hate 'em or just take 'em...whatever your opinion, they are a part of education.

I don't make it a focus of the year, nor do I mention it until about a month before. All our attention all year long is how to become a better reader and writer, so it all works just fine. About a month before, we start learning test FORM. I just teach how to look at questions and figure out what they are asking, and the kids do the rest. Actually, they are surprised at how well they do on multiple choice format...they don't see it in my room any time prior to that.

I am looking forward to getting their scores -- I am positive they ROCKED it!
