Before State Testing begins, I wanted to motivate my students to think positively about themselves and reflect on their preparedness for the test. As a class, we discussed the test and how important it is, but also why we should not stress about it. We defined stress, then brainstormed reasons why we should NOT stress about a silly test! Students shared 20+ ideas, I recorded them on the board in the form of "I can..." or "I know..." statements, then students wrote their favorites on donuts and colored them. This allowed us to discuss testing, its importance, but also share out loud how prepared and confident we are!
Included in this product:
- "Donut Stress About The Test" bulletin board heading (color & b+w versions)
- "I donut stress, because..." half-sheet donut pages for students
- Pictures of an example board and completed student examples
