I am planning on trying as many different fun and encouraging things (songs, treats, etc. . .) that I can think of to assure my students and calm any/all nervousness. As 3rd graders my students know the importance of their test. Interestingly enough 1/3 of my class will not even be 9 years old when they test-yikes that's crazy!
So I am wondering what else do you do for your kiddos to calm their nerves? Do you have any great songs, raps, chants, poems, and/or stress relieving activities that you have found helpful with your students? If so, please share!!!
