My students are stressed about standardized testing.
I don't blame them! They know teachers are under a lot of pressure to show academic gains and I'm sure that sense of urgency trickles down to them.
To help ease their fears, I try to make cute little testing motivational signs to show them that I care. I've done this for open house, testing and the first day/week of school.
Here are some cute, free printables from GingerSnaps, available for free on TpT:
They're having a quiz on maps tomorrow and already had their first phonics test, but I think I might do one of these for their first unit test in reading in the upcoming weeks :)
