-Bulletin Board- Use the Motivational Posters and Testing Tips Posters to create a testing central in your classroom. Students can look to this board to learn about dress-up days, to post their personalized guitars, read motivational messages, look for testing tips, and keep up with the time during the test.
-Walk To Fame- If your school is extremely strict about what is posted in the classroom during testing, use these resources to create a "Walk To Fame" in your hallway. This will brighten your students day and remind them that you care and know they can be successful on the test.
-Candy Motivational Tags- Use these to offer a sweet treat to your students before or after the test. The inspiring messages are sure to let them know you care and start their day off with positive thinking!
-Time Posters- Keep students informed of how much time they have left to complete the test. This can eliminate test anxiety by keeping students informed along the way.
-Parent Letter- Inform parents and families of testing dates and allow them to help their child succeed with this testing letter. It informs parents of what they can do to help their child be successful, asks for donations of breakfast items (Return Reminder Included as Well), and informs parents of Dress for Success Days.
-Dress For Success Days- Encourage students to dress comfortable, but to also Dress For Success with color themed motivational days!
