Day 14 - The Test

Let me start this story by saying with 11 snow days, we got a bit behind in math (and everything else). Because of this, I have felt like I was rushing through things and not feeling great about it. That changed today after giving the unit test to some of my kindergarten kiddos.

I pulled them over two at a time because, if you know five year olds at all, you know I have to read the test to them and show them where things are so they can follow along. It's a long process at that rate, but after giving it to several of them, I noticed they were all doing very well and it all seemed pretty easy for them. [High five to me!]

After the last twosome that I pulled over finished, they walked away from my table with smiles on their faces.

J: That was easy!
G: Yeah. That was pretty fun!
[High five to me!]

I don't know about you, but I don't remember thinking very many tests in school were fun?!


I sure hope they keep thinking that way!


  1. High five to you! Hooray for fun assessments, in your kinder's eyes!

  2. Kudos to you! I guess you provided a safe and positive environment for your students and that might have resulted in your students positive attitude towards the test.

  3. What a win! High five to you and all those littles you are surrounded by! Hard work, fast or slow, pays off. :)
