Today was the Chapter 1 test for my seventh graders. They are using the old version of the Cuéntame Más books. If this story (written by the class) is any indication of how wacky they are, you are only imagine the stuff that they will write about when left on their own. I like to lazily use the listening test supplied by the book. I have rewritten all my own reading passages for the tests. For the writing section, I use a “first / last picture” format for each chapter test.
I was really tickled at a lot of the stories I got from my students. I only have two new students in my 7th grade class that haven’t had me before. The two I didn’t have before had a Rosetta Stone program at their school instead of an actual teacher. Either it really did help them out or they are just fast processors, but they are both doing awesome in my class. One of them actually has the best accent out of any of my students in the whole school!
Anyway, I had to scan their writing tests because I loved some of the stories I got. Of course, they are at school and I’m at home so I can’t share them.
I really have fun when I’m reading any of my students’ writing because it really is a blast to see what silly things they have in their head for me!
