I had been looking for some quotes that I could use to keep my students thinking positively as they prepare for our state assessments. As I looked through the quotes I also came across some 'affirmations' that triggered ideas for some quickie 'jingles'. Sooooo... I tinkered with some thoughts and came up with these songs that my school is using in our assemblies to get our students to start thinking positively about the upcoming tests.
This is an attachment created on Microsoft Word. There are three 'songs' that are written to the tunes of (1) Twinkle, Twinkle, (2) This Old Man, and (3) Itsy-Bitsy Spider
As always, I figure if it's something I had been looking for, others will find them useful, too! Hope so!
... i don't know. can someone post them so i can see them too?? Not even new members can view attachments here.
I posted these for ProTeachers members because these are the teachers who have helped me with so many of their wonderful ideas! I guess some may not agree with my reasoning... but it's VERY EASY to become a member.
Nope...I am going to use them for my fifth graders. I am also making a bulletin board to motivate them, too. I am going to have them write test tips, poems about tests, feelings about the tests, etc. to decorate it. I bought some pompom type leis from Target and put around an orange background. Then I cut out different colored construction paper 3s and 4s (that's what NC scores are expected) with die cut machince and put those all around. It's cute even without any words! I will be glad to send a picture if someone wants! :-) Happy testing!
I have the same problem as teachme216, I have signed up so that I can view these songs as they sound great, but I still can not view them Would you be able to post them on this bulletin on a message so that everyone who has just signed up can still see them?
