I really don’t like the math portion of the ACT. We definately haven’t gotten the more difficult material yet in school. I think it’s time to take maters into my own hands.
I don’t want school tomorrow. I could really use another three days of weekend. Or just one day. That sounds nice. I would really rather just avoid school. I’m tired, and going to bed. Maybe I’m getting sick.
This Weekend has been pretty good. I keep thinking that there isn’t much time left, but then I remember that it’s a four day weekend. It ends tomorrow either way, but three days are definitely than one. I haven’t done too much except read, play computer games, go to the ACT course, and see Divergent. I might post about that tomorrow. I’m still not entirely sure of my opinions.
“Let’s have play practice on a vacation day.”
“Okay, sounds do-able.”
“Also, we should start at 8:00 AM”
“What on earth would make you think that this will go over well?”
Why????? I… Just…. Nope. Nope. Nope nope. No. I would much rather do, like, 8:30. That’s when school is. But 8:00? There went my morning.
I like these less than the old tests. The standardized tests are not meant to reflect the student, but instead to show the school and its teaching ability. I feel like these tests will show the schools far below their actual level, not because the schools are not performing well, but because the tests are poorly designed.
The course in Wagner actually went better than expected. There was a surprise test, but I did pretty well on that. Science is easy, as are English and reading. Math will be the only tricky part, but I’m reasonably confident that I will be prepared come testtime.
I’m going to look over some of the prairie readers books before Tuesday. Its hard to believe that the competition is here already. It’s felt kind of doe played and ignored this year, with less practice and no real focus.
