Testing Motivation

Hi everyone!

Well.....the week is here.  The culmination of everything that I do has been crammed into one long test, and it is here.  I am sure you can all sense how truly "excited" I am that testing is going on out in rural land where I teach.  Unfortunately, one of the "perks" of working with third graders is the dreaded EOG.  My kids have been working SO hard on their tests, and I am very proud of them!

Now that I have had some time on the soapbox, I wanted to share a few motivational things that I did for my kids each morning before their test.  I wish that I could say that I came up with these ideas all on my own and made the printables all on my own, but I totally didn't :)  To see the real creative genious behind these cutsie ideas, follow the links!


Please envision the airhead that was taped to the letter before the kids gobbled it up:)  They were so surprised and excited to see their treat!  I got the idea from Adventures of Ms. Smith.  She has a SUPER cute blog!!


The boys especially enjoyed this one!  I honestly found this printable one time online and now I cannot find it again!  NOOOO!!  If anyone sees or knows where this came from I would love to give them credit!


Glow bracelets with cutie pie notes from Fun in First.  I like this one because it is not candy;)

To all testing teachers-I hope you are having a stress free experience!  Ciao for now!!
