Feeling Testy

It's reaching the end of the school year, and with that comes testing.  I don't know any teachers who just love testing, but I definitely understand the need for assessing student growth.  This year, Johnston County Schools began Music, Art, and P.E. assessments.  My kids had to draw self-portraits and the beginning of the year, and now they are doing their "after" portraits.  It's my first day of after portraits, so I have a few before and afters to show some of the progress my kids have made this year.  I'm really proud of the hard work they've put in, and it's nice to see that some of what you're doing is sinking in! So, from 5th to kindergarten, here are the before and afters!  [There are 2 kindergarten ones because it's so cute to see how far they've come! Even though they have a lot of growth to make by the 5th grade.] [P.S. They couldn't see their first ones, so only I have seen the before and afters!]

5th grade                        Before                                            After

4th grade                        Before                                       After

3rd grade                        Before                                    After

2nd grade                        Before                                    After

1st grade           Before                                   After

Kindergarten              Before                                 After
Kindergarten              Before                        After

And of course this requires me to do lots of grading and sorting...one day down, six more to go!
