You Oughta Know About ... Encouraging Snack Messages for Test Taking Days!

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas You Oughta Know About Blog Hop with Encouraging Snack Messages for Test Taking Days!
You Oughta Know About ... a quick and easy way to encourage students before testing
Research shows that children with a full belly can focus better on standardize tests. Before each important test, beginning of the year tests, standardize tests, end of the year test, for any major important test a little snack can take the edge off the EXTRA stress these tests cause our little students. 
Putting these snacks into a baggie before the day of testing also makes it less stressful for the teacher. If you can get a parent volunteer or PTA member to do it. Ask them to write a little message on the baggie as well. OR you can write the message once the snacks are in the baggies. Just a little something extra to let them know you are thinking about them and wishing them well on the test!
I'm part of a terrific blog hop this month, You Oughta Know... and I invite you to hop around for more wonderful ideas for your classroom!

  1. Love that you combine snack with a positive message! I give out cute treats like this for special celebrations, but never thought about doing it on testing days. Perfect!

  2. We have sometimes paired up testing grades with non-testing grades and we give our test buddies a snack! "Do a beary good job on your test!" with Teddy Grahams is always one of my favorites to use! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!


    1. I love that, what a great idea!
      Thanks for sharing,
      Fern :)

  3. I love this idea Fern. It really motivates the kids and it shows that you care about them!
