Testing is Over! Now let the fun begin!

Actually my kids had a blast with our baseball themed test review. But this teacher could not be happier to be done with state standardized tests!

I have shared all kinds of baseball thmed review games. (Just click on "Baseball Theme" on the side bar to see the posts.) I wanted to follow up and show you the last couple of things my kids did before test day.

We talked a lot about test taking stratgies. I had them all pick one that they thought should be their own personal goal for test day. They wrote it on a clip art baseball. Then we glued the balls onto baseball mits and decorated our door with their test taking promises. I even made one!

Then right before test day I made a fun pennant with test taking tips. I made an accrostic poem using the word "Swing." The kids loved reading it on their way in the room each morning!
In fact my kiddos loved this baseball theme and the fun Superbowl activities from January so much....that I decided to ditch the circus theme and have a sports theme room next year!!! I have already been hard at work creating and planning and I am so darn excited! I will be sharing more soon!
