Anyway, my short rant there is just to say that I promise some exciting test-prep infused lesson ideas in the coming weeks. I am currently concocting one now...which entails me going through the Part 1 of the NYS tests archived from '06-'10 and itemizing them. woo-hoo! I'm such a wild lady on a Wednesday night! LOL Maybe I can finish this so I can implement it tomorrow before they take a practice multiple choice section on Friday with my substitute! (I have a gr. 4-8 ELA meeting with our district lit coach....)
Happy Teaching! :) Ideas coming soon....promise!!!
