"After-STAAR-Testing" Blues?

via Technology Tidbits by Twyla Felty

It happens every year…
Students all finish their standardized testing leaving classrooms full of students (and teachers) ready to call it a day—-but with half the day left!!!  What is the best solution for these awkward afternoons?

Well, this year Earth Day just so happens to fall on Tuesday, April 22—-STAAR testing day! So after you have finished your test prep by re-reading your “Test Administrator Manual”, take a look at these great online resources from Julie Greller’s blog, A Media Specialist’s Guide to the Internet. There is something for every grade level in these “38 Great Sites for Earth Day“. Perhaps you can even find the perfect activity to head outside for some educational fun in the sun!

Who knows, the kids may look forward to the next day of testing! Plan accordingly !
