We are getting ready for our standardized tests. BORING! I absolutely hate test prep! That is why I made a MOVE IT especially for test prep. This PowerPoint shows questions similar to those that the kids will see on the big test. My kiddos use dry erase boards to show me their answers. I love this because I can do an immediate assessment and give feedback. After we do a few questions, we get out of our seats and MOVE IT! The theme of this MOVE IT is "Test Prep is Awesome". Guess what? It really is! Brain breaks have animated timers and music. We walk around and high five our awesome classmates and tell them "You are awesome!" We also do lazy 8s and an elbow-knee cross crawl inspired by brain gym. Pretty awesome, right?
In math we are reviewing geometry and are working on slides, turns, and flips. We tossed our workbook page for a fun hands-on project. OH YA!!! That's what I'm talking about!
Today was a great day in my room and I am so grateful to be able to share it with you. Thanks for reading.
Until next time,
