Now that we've been in school for a long while does your GS'er still like his/her teacher?

Does your school do AR tests (accelerated reader tests)?

Does your school do any type of spring festival?

Does your school do AR tests (accelerated reader tests)? Yes, however I absolutely cannot stand this program and wish it'd go away. Seriously sucks the fun out of reading.

Joe loves his reading teacher but is only so/so with his math teacher.

We do AR and I agree it sucks the fun out of reading!! He wanted to check out a book the other day that he can more than read but because he didn't have enough AR points they wouldn't let him?! UGH! I told him we'd go to the public library and get it.

And no spring festival as far as I know.

Does your school do any type of spring festival? Yes. It's tied into a carnival fundraiser. Usually a lot of fun.

Seriously?!? If the point is to get kids to be better readers and actually enjoy books, how does this not totally backfire? That's really upsetting.
