Easing the Stress of Testing: Encouraging Desk Notes for Students
•32 Testing Desk Tags for students
•*A parent encouragement note idea included!

Unfortunately in this day and time testing is a reality, and as educators, we must prepare students for standardized testing. Some students get very stressed during this time. We often try to comfort our students by saying, “Don’t worry. You’ve got this!” or, “Just do your best!” However, I think it’s important to encourage parent engagement as well.

Included in this download is a note you can send home to parents requesting that they join you in easing the stress of testing at school. Parents are asked to write a short note of encouragement and to send a picture (no larger than a 5 x 7) to be displayed in the classroom during testing sessions. I have done this for years in my 4th-grade classroom, and students love reading all the notes from parents, as well as sharing their own.

There are 32 desk notes you can print and leave on student desks with a small treat each day. A page is included which lists the desk notes and treats ideas to include with each one.

Another idea:
In the past, I’ve used these notes with my own children as well. I’ve used them as lunch notes by slipping them in their packed lunch each day of testing. It always makes them smile, and they look forward to seeing what they will get each day.

This is just one small way to show your support and encouragement from home as a parent, or from school as a teacher!
