Yesterday, Morgan took her very first ever classroom test!! She took the Otis Lennon test. I liked this being her first test because it was only 1 1/2 hours long. She left feeling confident.
Today was the first of 2 days of SAT testing. Today, she had to be there an hour earlier (8:30 a.m.) and stay until 12:45! She is doing the same thing tomorrow.
What I was the most concerned about was the fact that they were not allowed to have any snack or lunch break!! Now, I know my child can survive 4 1/2 hours without food. She's done it many times. At home, we don't have snacks everyday. The concern I have is that by about 11:30, they are going to have a classroom full of hungry kids. It seems to me like this could heavily affect their testing abilities. I know once my child feels the first pang of hunger, her mind cannot think of anything else (she's just like her mama).
The best I could do was make sure she had a heavy breakfast (Sonic Toaster Sandwich on the way there) and bring her lunch in the car when I picked her up.
I asked her how she did and she replied with a very low key, "o.k.". She didn't offer a lot of information (she rarely does to mommy), but she did say that she was done with each section before the time was up and she read an entire chapter of her book while she was waiting.
I am so curious to see the results!! I have no idea how long I have to wait, but I'm sure it's too long!
