I MADE MY VERY FIRST PRODUCT FOR TEACHERS PAY TEACHERS! I am quite pleased by it! Check it out! It's an owl themed Daily 5 poster set. I plan on doing the definitions soon.

It's graduation time and this one is bittersweet. There were a bunch of great kids in this class that I will miss so much. If I ever have a kid, I'd want him or her to be just as sweet, charming, adorable, and, not to mention, as smart as some of the ones I had this year. I can only hope next year's class will amount to the same.

So the SOLs are FINALLY OVER!! It only took 3 weeks! My stomach hasn't been normal since the first one! Now I can relax and so can the kids. I think they did fairly well; I'm not counting my special ed kids. I really don't think it's fair that they have to take a FIFTH GRADE SOL when they aren't even on level. I mean, how can you expect a child who reads at a third grade level to PASS A FIFTH GRADE TEST? That's just setting him or her up for failure. If we have been differentiating all year long, then they should be taking a test that is on their level. I totally don't understand how the education system works and I'm a teacher!

So this is the last one. My stomach and nerves will be much happier at 4 pm today. I was very sad that I didn't get to teach Social Studies this year. Hopefully, I will be able to next year. I really miss it. I think the kids will do okay. I know they're excited to be done with the stuff. Now what to do with them next week....

I think the kids are wearing down. Today was no exception; they didn't have me harassing them to go to bed early or eat a good dinner. They were lagging today. Half of them kept putting their heads down. Mondays is not a good day for SOLs; however, most of them pulled through!
