Cold Storm! ..... and MAP assessment

      Oh my we officially had a full day at school today which was fabulous! But wow am I exhausted :) The weather in Ohio has just been nuts. We got a pretty big snow storm this past weekend, but the real story has been these cold temperatures. Needless to say, I need to get back into my routine. Not that sleeping in, drinking coffee all morning, and catching up on my favorite shows hasn't been enjoyable!
      Last Friday, I was supposed to pilot the MAP assessment for our district. Yes, that's right in kindergarten. Let me tell you, there is nothing more precious than little Kinders working so hard on their own little laptop. We spent a few days getting familiar with the laptops and I was so impressed. Unfortunately, Friday came around and we had a two-hour delay, plus there was a glitch in the system. So....we are giving it a try tomorrow. My kids are stoked! They are feeling pretty special seeing as they are the only ones in the ENTIRE school that get to take this test. Do any of your districts use this assessment? What are you thoughts? Below are some pics of my darlings learning how to use the laptops. Enjoy :)

  1. hi I'm only seeing 3 posts in this MAP testing series. Did you ever finish them? Especially the part about how you use the data to drive instruction? So far, it is wonderful information! We are deep into preparing for the Spring test. :) Thanks~!
