Smarties Test Prep Treats
This treat is a fun little way to remind students and parents of some tips and guidelines to be ready for testing on Monday. Inside a Snack-sized Ziplock baggie, I put a few Smarties candy rolls and a slip with the reminders. I send these home with the students on the Friday before we start testing on Monday.
The Test Fairy
The first day of testing my classroom gets a visit from the Test Fairy, the Tooth Fairy’s very responsible older sister. :) She leaves us a little note...
along with a bucket of these special freshly sharpened test pencils
I love these kind...Dixon Ticonderoga...they sharpen fabulously...and erase great...plus since they are sparkly, they look like a fairy pencil! (I wish I had a picture of them in there bucket...I will update with it!)
The final preparation is testing treats. Each morning of the test, I put a test treat along with a little note on each student desk. This year my treats are...
Monday ~ Reading Test ~ Lucky Charms
Tuesday ~ English/Language Arts Test ~ Fruit Roll Up
Wednesday ~ Math Test ~ Rice Krispie Treat
Thursday ~ Science Test ~ Goldfish crackers
Friday ~ Social Studies Test ~ Mini Oreos
The treats are a surprise, so the students have no idea what will be there each morning. I love giving them this fun little surprise to look forward to each of these not so fun days.
