Beating Test Prep Burnout
It is that time of year when the kids are shutting down. They are tired of hearing the words STAAR test....and I'm tired of saying them! I am always looking for fun ways to get the students involved, but also prepare them for the test. We have 10 days left until the BIG day and my students think it is summer already! I know, scary right?? Here is something that I do to try and mix things up. Instead of running 20 copies of skill and drill sheets I only run 5. I cut them apart and paperclip each question together. I put them in a basket that is ready to go at anytime. Sometimes I even use them when I have an extra five minutes.
