  2. Your links are cute!

    Test taking is no fun, but we do a couple things to help the students feel prepared and pumped up. Our spirit committee organizes little treats each morning with a note attached (smarties, star bursts, rulers, etc.).

    As a third grade team, we roll out big block paper and have students sign a pledge with one thing they'll do during tests (eat breakfast, reread for answers).

    I also make bracelets with my students that have acronyms. This year we did "LEARN" and each letter represented a test strategy. I have a copy over at my blog if you're interested.

  7. This is a great post. I shared a poem a month or so ago called "Teach ME". It is a reminder that we are teaching more than a test or curriculum but a child and his or her heart. I would love for you to come read it!

    I am a follower and would love for you to maybe follow me too!

    I am going to share your awesome blog with my friends!
