Looking at all the standardized testing results the last week has been exhausting and enlightening. I am trying to decide how my students feel about it. Are you nervous about the upcoming test? Do you prepare for the test and how? While administering I noticed lots of small details about my students that I wouldn't have otherwised realized. One student even brought in his "lucky pencils" pretty awesome! Athletes, maybe you could transfer your game day rituals to the test day. Have you ever heard of those- like hockey players that don't shave during the playoffs or pitchers with lucky socks.
