Halfway through testing the classes for Beginning of Year testing. We'll do this each 9 weeks prior to report cards. We test on colors, shapes, upper and lower case letters, the sounds of the letters, numbers, and writing their first name. We have a LOT to cover this year!
We learn in many ways.. through tracing, computer games, creating with
playdoh, iPods, shaving cream.. you name it! Lots of practice in
different ways.... keeps us all happy!
Are you able to test your little guys successfully without an aid in the room to help? I thought it was going to be very difficult, but our learning centers have made the testing pretty easy going. They know their groups now and have down the use of the centers. One happy teacher here!
