Tonight I am writing letters to some of my old friends, the third graders! They are going to take the state STAAR test for the first time on Tuesday. I had planned to give them good luck letters but waited until the very last minute to write them, as I do. I have to give them the letters tomorrow, because I am pretty sure it is considered a testing irregularity to even look them in the eye on Tuesday! They still seem so little to be taking such high stakes tests...sigh.
Best of luck to all those kids and teachers and parents getting ready for the "big tests".
