After a long week of testing, I was nabbed to do make-up tests this morning. I must admit I was going out of my way to be cheerful and encouraging when I went to pick up the kids who needed a make up. Fortunately, one little girl knew just how to put smiles on all of our faces. After I announced, "I'm the make-up queen," she looked closely at me, smiled and then laughed. "I never thought of you as an expert at make up." She then noted, "I always thought of you as a reading and writing queen." I cannot predict how that child did with close reading on the ELA, but I know she has close listening and close viewing down pat!
PS I will visit the local Clinique counter as soon as possible!
