Just wondering if everyone is as stressed as I am about the TEST! I teach 5th grade and am absolutely killing myself trying to get all the core content in before the testing window. I feel like I can't do a good job teaching because I have to cram so much into every day. We can't spend adequate time on any concept-just when the kids are really enjoying a topic, I have to move on to the next one. I wish we didn't have the test looming over our heads everyday. The children are feeling the stress just as much as I am. I feel like I am preparing my kids to take a test instead of giving them a well-rounded education.
