First day of school

The joys of standardized testing...

Yesterday started the first day of standardized testing. I was administering a writing multiple choice test (key word: writing) but had a math read aloud booklet. Yup, math.

So, we spent 25 minutes trying to figure out what to do and then I finally got permission to read from a test booklet. Needless to say, it was a very long day.

Today is part 2 of the testing - the writing prompt. It will still be a long day, but I don't have to read all the questions.
