Standardized Test Prep Unit
Just the mention of a standardized test causes major anxiety for both students and teachers. This comprehensive test prep unit was designed to alleviate angst, strengthen skills, promote self-awareness and build confidence.

In this unit, students meet Tina Turtle, Troubled Test Taker and Frankie, Fumbling Fox, both of whom struggle with major test taking anxiety. Each week, the students teach Tina and Frankie an important test taking skill or strategy; students help Tina and Frankie practice the strategy at a test prep center. Students can easily relate to the animals struggles and they feel empowered as they help these two troubled test takers.

This unit includes:
--Tina, Test Taking Turtle and accompanying poem
--Frankie, Fumbling Fox and accompanying poem
--Detailed instructions on creating Test Prep centers and folders
--10 test taking tips (on both individual pages and on one whole page)
--10 lesson plans to teach test taking tips
--5 test prep activities (with literature connections) to boost self-esteem and motivation
--Customizable parent letters
--Test prep award and student treat bag
--Several color pictures show test prep in action!
