SLO is a new term in the realm of teaching. It feels a bit like writing something for a team of lawyers. I have to create a test for my 6 th graders with my team members to address the learning needs of my class so the State of Ohio can track the progress of students in subjects that are not tested by the state. We have to create our own test, decide how we are going to score our test, then administer and grade the test, and compare how much the students learn by April this year. Sounds okay, but it is a tremendous amount of work on top starting a school year. All the paperwork needs to be done among, grading papers for normal work, initial assessments for readability, interim reports and parent teacher conferences.
No fun, that is for sure.
This little niece turned 5 in September. I have to say I wish we had these contraptions when I learned how to roller skate.
I got to go with my Mother-in-law, Kayla and her friend to see Gladys Knight and the Saints United voices. It was an amazing spirit-filled night. Five Guys burgers on the way home were awesome too.
Kayla is working at Target now, it is fun to see her growing up. She makes some fun choices and is turning out ok. Kota works hard everyday physically and comes home filthy, the dirtier he is the more proud he is of himself. He is progressing well.
Kyle just passed a kidney stone this week, he kept it, and named it Harold...he's weird. But, I love him!
So much has happened in the last 6 weeks but, that is it in a nutshell.
