One week from today my third graders will have finished their first standardized test.  Well, half finished really.  Our reading test is broken into two parts.  I'm fretting over all that we have studied and accomplished and  (I can't help but wonder) how did we ever come to judging our children- and their teachers- by how they do on ONE test?

I ponder at the thoughts of being told (repeatedly and often) that children do not all learn at the same pace or on the same day... to differentiate their learning... some are auditory, others visual... Yet, we assess them all in the same way, on the same day...

Madness really...

Hang in there. It's almost over.  (At least that's what I keep telling myself!)
