    I teach at an Elem. school and we have our state test coming up....For our bulletin board we were thinking about having an outdoor background (sky and grass) and then drawing an animated oak tree because we are the Oakies and the tree was going to be holding a shovel and we were going to bury the test..we are going to have a pile of dirt by the tree as if it is shoveling the dirt to bury the test....and our words would say something like "We're going to bury the MCT!"

    Does that seem like an okay elem. bulletin board?

    I'm not sure if that's the best approach. Sometimes that can stress kids out more if there's a bulletin board reminding them of the coming test.

    It would catch my attention, it doesn't seem encouraging.

    That seems a bit morbid for elementary school. I'm so glad our state test is an acronym that is pronounceable and cute! When I taught elementary, we had frogs everywhere for the LEAP test!

    We decided to do a tree with the roots as feet and it is going to stomp the test.....maybe that would be better?

    Hmm...does it have to be about the test? I like the tree thing, especially if it's your mascot, but I think I'd much rather look at something to do with spring than stomping or burying a test.

    "Oakies-let's spring into success!"
    "Watch as We Bloom"
    put birds in your tree-"We are a Class to Tweet About!"
    "Oakies are Tree-mendous!"
