3/19/15 Newly Updated graphics and an EDITABLE parent letter and parent notes for 8 days of testing... Happy Testing!!!!!
I have witnessed first hand the level of anxiety that can result from state testing or any other "Big Test"! For this reason, I have created this TOP SECRET downloadable that not only motivates students but involves parents as well. This resource basically asks parents or loved ones to write and/or decorate a card for each day of testing. The card is then placed on the student's desk before they arrive, to surprise and motivate them on the morning of testing.
With this FREEBIE you will receive the following:
*A top secret letter for parents explaining their involvement
*A list of phrases or affirmations parents can use while writing inspirational notes for their child to read on testing days.
*4 note cards for parents to complete. Each comes with a different quote written on it.

FYI- The few times I have not had a parent complete this activity I have simply given the cards to a teacher the student has had during previous years, a special area teacher, the Assistant Principal, and even the Principal. (Trust me when I say the students who have received the letters filled out by the school's principal quickly become classroom celebrities!)

I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine have!
You'll love to see their reactions each and every day...
