    Our state testing is next Monday, March 10th. On Friday we are having a motivational speaker come, and the students are dressing up as their favorite Book Character. I need to come up with a less stressful test review for Language Arts. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe even last minute Test Taking Tips? I teach 4th and 5th grade.

    Test taking tips?

    - Breathe.
    - Hold the pencil lightly.
    - Ask yourself, "How do I know?"
    - Go with your first answer unless you can explain why that's a bad answer.
    - Draw pictures and make notes on your scratch paper. That paper isn't just for math.

    Jeopardy is a fun way to do review for that age group.
