Today also happens to be National Pi Day, as in 3.14. And so when my daughter finished her ERB test with time to spare (perhaps a little too much time to spare), she composed the following note, written on the last page of her ERB test booklet. (Click on the image to get a larger view.)
For those of you who, like me, can no longer read tiny print or up close, here is what she wrote:
THIS must be PAINFULLY BORING for you, even though you are getting paid and I am NOT. So here's a piece of pie because it's Pi Day. My favorite flavor is probably pumpkin with LOTS of cinnamon. :-) How about you? I hope this made your day a LITTLE better, or at least a bit more enjoyable. Remember, you're special. :-) xoxo, Abby P.S. I wasted 15 minutes on this. Go me. :-OWhile I know I should be horrified, or at least slightly appalled, I think it's great. It is ridiculous the number of standardized tests students, at least in my state, have to take, year after year. And they waste time that could be spent actually learning something.
So, yes, you go, Abby. I love you.
