Tomorrow, the quarters will take the STAAR Math exam. I don't teach Math, so I'm feeling no stress. I think my partner teacher and I have resigned ourselves to the fact that we have done what we could and what will be, will be. My quarters take the STAAR Reading exam on Wednesday.
It was sad leaving my room this afternoon. But that is only because I had to take down all of my anchor charts and my parts-of-speech word wall . My room looks so bare and uninviting!

They hung these inside their lockers (no STAAR things to "help" them when they walk down the hall to the restroom...haha). I could insert a smart comment but I'd better not...Anywho...my quarters had a good time adding their flair! We all know...if you do it, say it, color it, invest in it...you just might remember it!
My team teacher and I created and signed the poster below. I believe we can hang these on the outside of their lockers (but I will check with our AP before we hang them in the morning). Please excuse the lighting...
We printed them on many different colors of paper. They are not fancy, by any means, but we want the quarters to know we believe in them. I have put up the outline under my "Free Printables" tab, just in case someone is interested!
I'm just excited that, on Thursday, I get to return to the ART of teaching! 6 more weeks to go!!

I hope my quarters think this way and realize that tomorrow is their "chance"!
I now wipe my hands clean of the Texas STAAR!

Well...until next year...
