The testing season is upon and that leads to major stress for us, our students, and their families. Help ease these stresses with motivational notes from parents during testing!
With this product, you will get an editable note to send home explaining the idea (my originals are included - you edit to fit your needs! Do not just print and go...) and 8 note cards for parents to write the notes to their child.
A week before testing, I sent home the cover letter and the 2 pages of blank notes in a sealed envelope. I explained that it was a surprise for them during testing and that they needed to give it to their parents. If their parents had any questions, I told the students the parents could call me or email me. I left it at that. The students were very intrigued and wanted to know what was inside!
On the first day of testing, almost all of my students came in with handwritten notes from their parents encouraging them to do their best on the test. Some students said that they got their note at home before they got on the bus. These notes brought tears to my eyes! They were beautiful and encouraging and showed that the parents were very thoughtful about what they wrote to their child. Every day of testing students came in with a new note for that day. The students treasured them all week and read them over and over again. This will hopefully be something they remember forever!
I hope that you enjoy these notes and that they bring a little bit of happiness to your students during the stressful testing season. :) If you have any questions, please let me know!
