Sounds like a busy back to school. Isn't it fun this time of year to think about how much they've grown.
I can't begin to imagine 44 reading assessments-but as I read this post I am yelling CONGRATS! What a wonderful accomplishment for you along with your students.
Mandy~I enjoyed reading your poem, so clever! Congrats to your young readers and you!
Hooray for kinder readers! So glad the students are doing so well!
