At school this past week, we have been giving the easyCBM (it took the place of DIBELS). I was a little worried that the scores were going to go down when the passage reading was added. Fortunately I only had two that dropped a level from the first time. One is a little girl that we are getting ready to start testing on and the other is a girl that lets her behavior get in the way of her education. On a good day she may have went up a level, but apparently it wasn't a good day and she went down a level. On the flip side, I had one more move into above level. I felt better about my scores after going to a meeting and the presenter saying that there was a teacher in our district that had like 22 out of 24 in intervention. Whoa!
My personal WOW is all about blogging! My friend Em, @ Curious Firsties and I have been building a slow but steady friendship through blogging. Who knows if we will ever meet? I live in Oklahoma and she lives in Ohio, but as we have commented and replied to each others posts, a friendship has been built. I don't know if she feels the same, but I am always very happy to see and email from her. Anyway, I was lamenting the fact that I have let myself get terribly out of shape since my divorce and was really needing to lose weight to be healthy. She has offered to help me out! I would like to say I'm one of those people who has the will power to just do it, but apparently I'm not since I need to lose 40-50 lbs. I'm one of those people that needs to be held accountable, at least when it comes to trying to lose weight. So I am very happy and grateful that Em has offered to try and help me. WOW! Isn't the blogging world terrific?
