How to Help Your Child Be Ready for Testing

Testing season is upon us once again! Here are a few ways you can help your child do their best:

  • Have your child do something active the night before a test. Riding a bike and playing outside are great stress relievers, and they have the added benefit of helping children get a good night's sleep. Which leads to our next tip...
  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep on the nights leading up to a test. It's hard to stay focused for long periods of time if you are exhausted.
  • Food is important! Eat a healthy meal the night before a test. Take the time for a well-balanced breakfast before school. Aim for breakfast foods that don't contain a lot of sugar.
  • Send a healthy snack and bottle of water (no special containers please) with your child on testing day. We ask that snacks be non-sticky so that testing documents are not accidentally ruined.
  • Remind your child that this test is not the end of the world. While it is important for children to do their best, the score they receive does not define who they are. Our children have so many gifts and abilities that standardized tests are simply unable to measure. As teachers we recognize this fact, and we want your children to know this too.
