|A birthday treat one of our students brought in!
I LOVE birthdays 🙂
As we march our way towards March, we get closer and closer to the beautiful Colorado state testing, known as TCAP. I made an effort to start doing small TCAP-y things at the beginning of the school year so that I wouldn’t feel so concerned and nervous right now. But, nonetheless, I’m still feeling that yucky, anxious, feeling that comes with this time of year. I trust my students and know they are capable of doing amazing things on the test- it’s just hard to think that one test on one day in March has such a large impact!!
So, on Tuesday we took some time to play a little review game, Jeopardy style! I pulled together some review problems for Reading, Math, and Science, as well as some Random Knowledge type questions, just to keep them on their toes! The questions were each assigned points- 100, 200, 300, 400, or 500. And students were divided into 3 teams. They had so much fun pushing each other to think deeply and correctly answer the questions. I’m hoping to make a game Review game for all 5th grade teachers, so be on the lookout for that at my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
Happy Saturday! Here’s to a long weekend 🙂
