I gotta finish my progress reports by Monday so they can go out in report cards. Despite everything, I got 15 done yesterday. We were sent a computer version of the form and it really is easier than writing it. My goal is to work on the computer today and get out at least 20 more. Then I won't be so far behind tomorrow. I'd rather be thinking about lesson plans and the student I tested Friday. The student tested normal for language but had a really low score in the following directions sub-test. I want to think of another test I can give to further probe that weakness. The student was a transfer from another district that was about to be dismissed from speech.
I may have another second grade student that just transferred in. My second grade groups are very crowded. I may have to make another time for them. The teachers are not gonna like it, but I just can't give these kids what they need in such large groups.
