Usually…

Usually, she has a smile on her face…
This week, her forehead is wrinkled and her mouth is an unhappy slash…
Usually, she likes her desk and chair- it’s her own little space in the world…
This week, she doesn’t want to sit at the assigned desk and the chair is all wrong…
Usually, she is enthusiastic and speaks sweetly…
This week, she is reluctant and whines about everything…
Usually, she is excited about learning and tries her best, even if something is hard…
This week, she is frustrated and on the verge of giving up…

Have you guessed what is different?
This week we have state-wide testing…

    It is a shame that testing makes such dramatic observable changes in students (and teachers as well).

    I feel for you! Hopefully next week will be a better week!
