rewards

Last week Miss K as a grade 3er had to do the NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) testing. 3 days of tests for kids across Australia. She was a little nervous. I kept telling her that really the tests were to test if the teachers are teaching well.... not testing her persay.

Anyway she is a smart cookie and I know she did just fine... so as a reward we went to get a little treat after school, after the last day of testing. I rarely do this so it was fun.

I read somewhere out in the blogosphere about someone who takes her children out to a nice cafe at the end of each school term for a little celebration.. I think that is totally sweet and might have to do that myself

Relief.. Testing is OVER! Pass me the desserts!


What do you mean I have to share?


Someone forgot their cafe manners... we were meant to share this cake with 2 forks.. she just picked up the whole piece and went for it

well done! Those tests are full on! I always take my boys out to a special cafe at the end of term, it is very rewarding and they always debrief about the term.

Oh, so that's what Naplan meant! Obviously i don't read the school newsletter thoroughly, thought it had something to do with getting kids to sleep:)

Congratulations Miss K for completing the test, you deserved a treat!

ilaughed out loud when i saw the photo of Miss G, that's what Master H would do.

Mum and sisters also get the treat, although Miss K did all the work!!
