Just like many other schools across the country, our state testing begins this week. Anymore, that seems to be what schools focus on all the time, all year long. Sad isn't it?
Regardless of the heavy testing focus, schools are still required to administer these high stakes tests. Students are very aware of their importance, and just like on any other test, they can become anxious or nervous.
Thus, it's important to be even more positive with students this time of year. There are great motivational ideas and testing tips out there to help with this.
I am sharing a few of these below. If you have any other ideas, feel free to share! We'd all love to hear them!
Good luck to everyone on their state testing!
