Tomorrow begins our SAT testing. We've been working hard on testing strategies.
I'll be wearing a waitress type apron full of tissues, mints, and of course sharpened pencils so I have everything within reach.I saw this similar idea that I'm going to share with you on another blog and decided to adapt it for testing week. I'll have these 3 buckets ready for my students. I'll have 3 lists labeled Listen, Look, and Think on the board. When I see a student displaying one of these skills during our testing I will write their name on the board on the list. After testing they will get to come and pick from the appropriate bucket.
I'm hoping this will be that extra little motivation for them to do their best!
