California Standards Test and Star Testing This weekMay 20, 2007 at 5:07 pm | Posted in education, elementary, high stakes testing | 5 Comments
In third grade, we get 8 days worth of standardized testing. It starts on Monday for us. I’ve been prepping my students, not with just test practice, but with strategies, you can do it, stay calm, let’s make it fun, etc. My kids are well aware of what’s going to happen on Monday. Nonetheless, it’s going to be a stressful week and a half.
I’m wondering what kind of fun I can bring into the curriculum to ease the stress in the afternoon. Got to keep them excited about school and motivated to come to school everyday, without tiring them out.
What do you guys do?
