Whew! We survived...
dun dun dun
Today I'm linking up with my bud, Joanne, from Head Over Heels for Teaching, to share an idea that both motivated and encouraged my students this week. The idea comes from my dear friend, Rose, who blogs over at Rosie's Rambles:
She created this cute and practical packet of Testing Encouragement Cards:
These cards are the perfect little note to encourage your students to keep working hard!
We tested for four days this week, so I put one card on each students' desk each morning:
The first day I gave them little Testing Survival Kits that I had put together:
Tuesday they came in to find these notes:
Wednesday I waited until halfway through the morning to pass out these delicious cards:
And on the last day, Thursday, I gave them a final note to let them know how proud I was of their hard work all week:
*Instead of candy on this one, I put two of our classroom tickets on each desk.
*I printed the cards in B&W to save ink - but copied them on colorful paper to add pizzazz!
You can snag these encouragement cards for only $1 from Rosie's TPT store.
Use one or use them all - for a buck, it's a bargain! :)
Also, she has given me permission to give away a set for FREE!
Here's how to play:
