Notes of Encouragement for Test Day

Hey, y'all! Standardized testing season is right around the corner. This time of year is stressful for both students and teachers alike (trust me, I'm a third-grade teacher, I totally get it!).

On testing days, it's always helpful to give a bit of encouragement to students so that they know you are rooting for them and that you believe in them. I like to have my parents send in a hand-written note for each day of testing so their kiddos can read it before they crack open their test.

Along with a note from their parents, I give my students a little snack and a note of reassurance. I created these fun little labels to attach to their goodies. I print them off on Avery 5395 labels (or any labels that have 8 to a sheet and measure 2 1/3" x 3 3/8".

These fun little treats can be used all throughout the school year and a great way to let your child know that you're rooting for them!
