Here are some advices about testing!
The Night Before the Testing
·Visualization: Have a conversation with your child about what the day will look like.
·Get a good night's sleep. Kids need a full 8 hours of sleep.
·Self-Talk: give your child a few phrases that can motivate him/her "I just need to do my best!" "I can do it." "Stay cool."
·Answer any fears or questions your child might have.
·Prepare your child’s snacks, pencils, clothes, etc. the night before.
· Remind your student to remain focused and no talking/playing during the test
On STAAR Testing Day
·Eat a good, healthy breakfast.
·Do relaxing activities like taking deep breaths, tensing muscles and then relaxing them, talking about something unrelated to STAAR.
·Arrive early to school. (Testing will start ASAP)
·Please leave cell phones, backpacks, hand-held games, and electronic watches at home.
·Wear layers so your child is comfortable in any temperature.
·Remain calm and positive.
