Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday this week!
1. AIMSweb benchmarking is over - a long two days of benchmarking the whole school and all I wish is that I could hear the end of the passages! Since this was the last time of the school year, I had so many kiddos trying to stay to finish reading the stories because they won't read the same ones next year; even one wanted to come back and get the binder when we were done testing so that they could finish reading the passages!
2. The Chicago Blackhawks won the President's Trophy for most points in the season and home ice advantage during the playoffs!! It was announced late last night that they'll be facing the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the playoffs!
3. The Bulls had a KILLER triple overtime game yesterday that lasted 4 HOURS with very feisty players...totally awesome and worth procrastinating on my work to watch it :-)
4. I have 20 school days left and I feel like they'll be the longest ones yet - I had 2 substitutes this week because of the AIMSweb and let's just say, these were not the best times that I ended up having substitutes in my classroom...I've never had a problem before which is interesting.
5. Now that benchmarking is over, it is time to start testing sight words and guided reading levels. Data, Data, Data! Bring on another week! - at least this one is supposed to warm up and include sunshine!
