This is a PowerPoint I created to pump my students up for doing test prep. It is called TAKS (the old Texas test) but you can replace it with ANY test name!
This can be done any time before the test. It goes over why it's important to practice, and includes a draft like event where the teacher is the coach and he/she picks the players on the team (each student's name should pop up on the slide- you just need to insert them!) It also reviews an incentive program that you can provide. Also, there is a link to a video to motivate them. This is always a REALLY BIG deal in my classroom and my students EAT IT UP!!!
