I Wanna’ Take My Test! Part 2

This post is a follow up to my post from a couple of days ago when I posted about one of my students who asked to take his daily fluency test in Voyager without me reminding him. Well, today, all six of the students in Level C made sure to remind me that I needed to test them. I told them, of course, I will test you. While I tested one student, I instructed the other five to read silently until I could get to them. They heartily concurred. I have to say that I am very impressed with the progress that my students are making. One of my students, Tag, who came into my class three weeks before the end of last school year, was reading 2 words/minute. Now, he is reading 32 words/minute (37 words with 5 errors). Another one, Curly Top, could not read at all when he came the 2nd week of September. Now, he is reading 31 words/minute (33 words with 2 errors). I am very proud of them. I’m also very proud of me for not quitting when the odds seemed insurmountable. Slow and steady wins the race.

Remember that!
