This is state testing week for my 3-5 graders. I have a small group with extended time, so I’m pacing the floor watching them test & reading aloud the parts that I’m allowed to read. It hasn’t been fun. I have one who has melted down at least once each day. Thank goodness today is the last day!!!
Since I’m tied up with testing, I didn’t make lesson plans for the week. However, our K-2 kids aren’t testing, so Kerrie was able to work with them on the 2 days that she’s here. Our state testing security is like Ft Knox, so Kerrie can’t come in the room during testing. In order for her to see kids for therapy I needed to make her a therapy-to-go kit.
I grabbed a plastic tub and loaded it up with:
- the daily data book
- my iPad
- the Peter Rabbit materials from last week
- an inferencing game that I made earlier this year
- some spring-themed chipper chat cards (w/ chips & the magnet)
- the Let’s Name Things fun deck
- the artic Dixie cups we made earlier this year
She managed to do therapy all day long with a wide variety of kids with just those things.
What would you need in your to-go box?
