We are quickly approaching the end of the school year. My kids take their SOL (standardized state test) on Tuesday - so I'm searching for things to run them through on Monday - drill and kill. But, I'd also like to find some games to play with them that will teach them. Any ideas? My boss has mentioned cause & effect - and I have a Smart Board "game" with figurative language. I'll probably use that. I could really use some help. And any suggestions for the rest of the year - we're doing a narrative writing as soon as the exam is over - after watching 4 Little Girls. And then the poor kids have to churn out a Persuasive Essay. We've given them some topics to make life easier.
I am looking to find a new job for next year - high school, college, or a job in a different district or even different school.
Anyone with ideas about that - let me know!!!
