This week and part of next I will be in the intermediate and middle schools doing Aimsweb Testing which is basically a reading test that is done three times a year. Three short readings, one minute to read as much as they can for each reading. This week is 5th and 6th grade. I am ok in the mornings listening to the stories but by the end of the day, having heard each story for what seems like a million times nearly puts me to sleep. I am pretty tired by the end of the day but that is probably because I haven't had a schedule in such a long time. I am enjoying being around the kids and most of the teachers are friendly (which is something that I have found is not always the case). It is hard though at the end of the day because I always used to call my Mom on my way home after teaching just to chat about the day. Miss you Mom.
