Testing, Testing….


STAAR testing is beginning this week at many AISD schools.  The dates range between now and the first week of April, but many schools are doing testing this week or the week after Spring Break.
All the more reason to give your kids plenty of outside/play time and promote physical exercise and activity as much as possible, since kids may be extra weary of sitting at desks and being stationary.  They’ll thank you for it (and you’ll have less behavior challenges)!
Here are a few places to get new ideas for physical games.  Get those kids moving! 🙂
