It's report card time. The biggest thing I can be thankful for is that they are now computer generated and not the old fashioned NCR forms. It still takes forever and the canned computer comments never say what I need them to say. I think next time I'll volunteer for the report card committee, ours is poorly designed, but better than it used to be. I can now recite the alphabet in the order we assess it. S M R T BN H V C P... I find it frustrating that the kids still call /S/ a /C/ even though it is the first letter we teach. Once I finish report cards I have to compile all the information for our Safety Net meetings, then place kids in intervention groups. It is going to be a long road ahead for some of my little darlings. I am thankful I have the entire week off and am looking at my insomnia as a blessing being that I did 12 report cards at 5:00 AM this morning. Happy holidays and happy benchmarking and report carding, may it go quickly.
