Boredom

11454297503_e27946e4ff_hThere really isn’t time to be bored in our classroom and it is rarely silent.  But, that’s the way I like it.  This test has changed that…

I’m so proud of the kids for persevering through this test. They were using all of the strategies we taught them to solve problems.

I’m so proud of the kids  for staying quiet and following rules that don’t make any sense to them, like sitting in a silent room wasting time when everyone is already done with their test.

But, kids will always find a way to entertain themselves and our class is no different.  Most of the kids spent the second half of the block upside-down on their balls.   (We use yoga balls as chairs in our room.)  A lot of our kids used this experience to write their own slice of life.  You can read one of them if you click on the picture below.  I love our kids!

One thought on “Boredom”

  1. I often say, ” Ugh, go faster clock. You’re so annoying!” 55 minutes of forced reading might be nice though. 🙂 Our first round of ISTEP is done. Computer version yet to come. 😛
