Tomorrow is our STAAR writing test. I hope my 4th graders do well and show what they know. However, it is just a day. This test does not change their smile or what I think about them. It does not define their future or what they are capable of achieving. It is merely four hours of their life.
One chance to show the state what they know and what they have learned.
I pray they know how precious they are to me. I do not see them as the score that they get. They are so much more.
So, tonight as a I reflect on what to write on here, I can't get my writers off of my mind.
I wonder if they know.
Have I told them?
Do they know?
All of them are SO much more!
