Five for Friday Flashback - STAAR, Steps, & Skooter

T.G.I.F. This is the first time I am linking up with Doodle Bugs and Teaching Maddeness. 
What a week to start sharing!

1. Monday I used my writing guide. As we were filling it in, I tweaked it for next year. 
I'll repost it in my TPT store, when I get a chance.

2. My pedometer said I took 14,520 steps before I left school. 
By the end of the day, I was over 18,000 or about 9 miles.

3. My room is ready for testing. It is so sad, ugly, and industrial. 
Super conducive to a relaxing testing environment .

4. When testing is finished, students may "read or relax". 
This young man took relaxing to a whole new level. 

5. Thursday was Skooter's 4th birthday!
He got a birthday treat ~ PB Frosty Paws.



  1. Thanks for stopping by our blog! Good luck with testing next week.

  2. That picture of the student after testing is perfect. That's kind of how I feel when they are testing!

  3. #3 is when you could of used my son's "Really" shirt! That is something my students would do!
