STAAR Test Woes

With the STAAR test looming, students have been expressing a lot of anxiety on our campus.  I saw this bulletin board idea on Danielle Schultz's website, School Counselor Blog, and we decided to try it ourselves!  At our weekly assembly, our principal asked students to give suggestions for ways to ease these testing woes.  We turned their amazing ideas into an inspirational bulletin board for all students in our school to utilize:

A few of the strategies students shared included: take breaks, get a good night's sleep, positive self-talk, etc.

Original idea from D Schultz. (2012, March 8). "To Proficiency... and Beyond!" Test-taking tips bulletin board [Web log post]. Retrieved from
