Testing season is rapidly approaching - or you may already have started! Here in NC, we don't start state standardized testing until 3rd grade, so my seconds don't have to do the standardized tests, but we do pair up with a 3rd grade class to provide encouragement - through candy!
This will be a quick little post - and a freebie included!
Each year each 2nd grade class pairs up with a 3rd grade class to encourage the 3rd graders on their EOG. It is such a nerve-racking test for the kids and with it being their first time - we know they need a little encouragement.
So, we send up testing treats starting about a week before the tests. the easiest way I have found to do this is to one large bag of candy with one tag - rather than individual. I a couple of my students deliver the candy to our partner class and then the teacher can pass out the candy when she finds it convenient for her.
If you have students paired up, or if you are using these for your own students, I have also included smaller tags that you can attach as well.
Well that's about it friends! Hop over to my TPT store to grab your testing treat tags!
