It’s that time of year for teachers around America….state standardized testing. Why we do this in March instead of May is beyond me, but they don’t ask me my opinion before deciding this stuff….and if I got the chance I would tell my opinion on a LOT of other things, so it’s best for all involved to leave me out the loop.
So in honor of all of us teachers who are tired of saying “shhhh!” and the parents who are tired of cranky whiny over-tested children, and those non-involved folks who are saying a quick prayer of thanksgiving for being a non-involved sort, I give you a quiz….
25 questions about everyday things. The average score is 7.
Go ahead and try it out. I was a little surprised by my results. I felt a little stupid, to be perfectly honest. Who uses a matchbook these days anyway??? Sheesh.
And this report is for Mr. Raul at school: Today I ate the cafeteria food. It was great. Tomorrow I will eat something green. It will be great. I ran a mile today. It was great. Tomorrow I will run another mile. It will be great. I drank water today. It was great. Tomorrow I will drink more water. It will be great. It is healthy. That is great. Yay me. I am great.
Have a GREAT day!
