Just imagine that title sung to the tune of "Back in the Saddle Again."
I have a job each spring tutoring middle schoolers in preparation for the reading portion of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test. I had a 100% success rate with my 7th graders last year, and 99% with my 8th graders.
This year I'm only tutoring 7th graders, and it's proving to be much easier this time around. I'm working Tuesdays and Thursdays all during the school day. While I had to move between two different rooms last year, this year I have one room all to myself all day long. Woo-hoo!
Unfortunately, it's also a storage room, so I don't have much space to set up. But, hey! It's MINE!
