School's (Not Quite) Out For Summer!

For the next couple of weeks, there is major testing going on at both boys' schools. SOLs, Finals, APs, XYZs... you name it. I have my own particularly strong opinions on all of these standardized tests that really have very little to do with how the kids have spent their last 8 months in the classroom. But, so sorry, that's not what this post is about!

In honor of test season, I have created my own short quiz for you all to take. Not to worry, though, it's multiple choice!

So get to class before the bell rings, and let's see how much you know. And hey... no cheating!

We've got that fun stuff going on here as well. Oldest is mad because it means he can't go on the playground - too much distraction for the upper grades.


Like real life doesn't come with distractions during "testing?"

BTW - I totally aced it :-)

I just copied off Em, and aced it too!

Loved your quiz. :) You and my 3rd grade teacher husband share the same disdain for standardized testing...

Nice one Deb. I got hung up on a few of the test questions though. Eventually I pulled it together and got them answered.

would you move in next door to me? I could kick out the oddball guy next door. And you would probably put curtains on your bathroom window, right?

and we could laugh and laugh and cry some too.

Oh yeah, I was C all the way.
