“So, What Are We Doing Later?”

“So, what are we going to do after we take our SOL Tests?”

That has been the question I have heard, at least every other day, for the last week.

In Virginia, we have Standards of Learning- Grade Level Test at the end of each year. We will complete our testing with about twelve (plus) days left in the school year.

This year, like I have the last three years, my class with be enjoying looking at our past.

Our writing concentration will be preparing for the Eighth Grade SOL Writing Test.

Our reading concentration will be research.

We will spend four days each exploring the 50s, the 60s, the 70s, and close out with the 80s.

Investigating the literature, the major events, the types of toys and games played, the fashion statements of the day, the movie classics, and the important people of each decade, is always a great way to end the year.

Written for The Daily Post: Later.  I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My topics for the month of March are as follows:  (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
