So I am a little late to this really cool linky party! I'm linking up with Fifth in the Middle for this fun linky. I am SO excited about the all of the Kansas Bloggers already linked up! I see visions of KS Bloggers Meet Ups in the near future! Link up your blog as well!
This past week was STATE TESTING WEEK #1 in Third Grade! Oh Joy! Oh What Fun! OH NO! State Testing in third grade is such a big deal because they have NEVER taken a test of this magnitude before, there are lots of nerves, technology issues, and since tests don't match up to CCS YET it makes it a wee bit stressful for ME as well! We created a SMART COOKIE recipe from the lovely ladies at Lesson Plans SOS.
|This is my favorite recipe that one of my third graders wrote!|
I would love to take a test with a "cozy blanket and pillow!"
|This is the SMART COOKIE recipe that |
we wrote as a class!
|Here is my Fast Finishers Board for State Testing|
My biggest challenge is always what to do with those fast finishers! You have some students that take 1 hour on the test and others than finish in 15 minutes. How do you keep them quiet, but working on things that MATTER! Well, I think I figured that out for my classroom! We are studying Ireland for two weeks, so everything that I set up for those fast finishers had to do with Ireland, thanks to Teachers Pay Teachers!
|A FUN creative writing activity from Rachelle Smith. This unit is |
JAMMED pack full of tons of activities for St. Patricks Day!
I HEART Rachelle's work!
|I LOVE this critical thinking packet from Golden Rule Days!|
|Chankyna created this was a fun activity for the kids to do!|
My kiddos did VERY WELL with this format! It was easy for me to set up and the kids just fell right into the routines! I am looking forward to posting new assignments for this next week (and LAST WEEK of testing)!
I hope your testing goes well!
Oh and by the way....I simply ADORE Sweet Fonts from Sweet TImes in First Grade! My favorites are "sweetseven" and "sweetsevenbigdots" which are what I USE all the time (and all of the posters above!)
