We all need a little break from test preparation now and again! This file contains a lesson plan, craft activity, and paragraph writing assignment. The lesson plan is aligned with third grade Common Core writing standards. These fun activities will build your students' confidence as they prepare for the rigorous state tests. Students will create a "Smart Cookie" version of themselves to celebrate how smart they've become throughout the year. They will then write a paragraph about their learning accomplishments. Templates are provided for the craft, although it could be created free-hand. Writing paper and a paragraph frame are provided for the writing assignment. Three different bulletin board headers/titles are also provided for creating student work displays. The author has included photos of completed projects from her own students.
