As a teacher, I know how important standardized tests scores are. They mean a lot. But, to a student, it may not seem like they are a big deal.
Make your students feel special and appreciated the day of the test! It is a great way to get their minds ready. Plus, studies show that when learning can be connected to another sense, then performance rates tend to be higher.
This pack includes 20 different sayings to go along with 20 different treats to give to students. Ranging from anything from Goldfish Crackers to Snickers to Cookies, there are sayings to motivate students. Both Color and Black and White versions are included within this download.
This is a great way to start the test off on a positive note and give students something of a reminder about how proud you are of them.
From my personal experience, I just had three weeks of standardized tests with all of my Learning Support students. They looked so forward to coming into the classroom to see what treat and saying they would get. Most of the students actually collected each of the notes from me so that they could keep them together. I made sure to sign each of the slips, too, so that they students knew it was from me every day. Sometimes I would catch them re-reading the saying during the test. I never realized a little note would be such a huge encouragement to my kids.
