Rock This Test!

        Courtney over at Miss Third Grade posted earlier this week an adorable testing song, Test Taking Face, which got me looking around YouTube for other videos/songs that I could show my students as we are entering the "testing season."  I found Rock This Test! which I also really liked and wanted to share with you.  You can watch it here:

        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!!!
