Don’t you just wanna squeeze those cheeks??

Ok, so back to that GRIT question…

We are now smack-dab in the midst of state testing, so GRIT, stamina and focus are essential this week!  This is a poster hanging in our room right now to remind us to believe in ourselves, try our best and show what we know.  That’s what assessments are for, after all, right? 🙂

Here are some other motivators from around our room:

Ms. Shifflett helped us out and got creative with paint the other day. 🙂

Even Mrs. Sisul got in on the fun!  What encouraging words to remind us that we got it!

I have to say how PROUD I am of how much grit, stamina and focus I am seeing as my kiddos work this week!  I am seeing examples of all of the smart testing strategies we’ve been talking about in action and I KNOW that we are SHOWING WHAT WE KNOW!  PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK, RM. 202!  You are ROCKING this test!
