State Testing - UGH.

                                  There once was an SBA test
                                  That claimed it was simply the best
                                  At measuring progress
                                  Of kids under duress
                                  Can’t we give testing a rest?

I’m tired and at a loss for writing topics at the moment – so here is a short limerick this morning before Day 2 of our State testing begins.  Only Day 2 and I’m already weary…

Quote for the day:   Sometimes the littlest things in life are the hardest to take.
              You can sit on a mountain more comfortably than on a tack.

  1. YUCK...remember this to shall pass. This year I moved down to fIrst grade and for the first time in a long time don't have to worry about the "big test" in April. I have years of memories of the anxiety and stress it produces all around though. I am sending you the beauty of Spring, a deep breath and a prayer.

  2. I love your limerick...may I share with my teachers? I would give you credit of course!

    1. Be my guest!!! Glad you liked it.

  3. I feel your pain! Tested today for almost 4 hours!

  4. I enjoyed your limerick especially the last line.

  5. I too enjoyed your limerick and LOVE the last line.
