April 8-12


Good morning.

I hope everyone had a good weekend and are ready to begin testing. Throughout the year, I have seen all of you work so hard to prepare your students to perform the best that they can. You have provided the instruction, tools and confidence to your classes. Now comes the time to take a deep breath and let them show what they know. They will do well! You are great teachers! Please let me know if there is anything you need from me.

I have include a " Shake It Off" Parody that you can show the students . This will help them relax and it reminds them of some test taking strategies. Please have the students sign onto their Schoology accounts. I left them a message.

Also, check out the section that has 10 tricks with handouts for those days when your class is way too chatty. We all know as testing finishes, it will become more difficult to keep students on task.

Aim High and Dream Big!!
