It's mid November and the trimester is coming to an end, so there is flurry of activity in my classroom. I've got one question left on a weather and health assessment (appropriately called Germ Busters!) and then, it's on to time periods in social studies. It's busy and bustling, but I like watching my students show me what they've learned...and in some cases, not learned. (That informs my teaching just as much.) I'm a data girl, so these are exciting times.
