Preparing for Testing

    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.
