Here are some great strategies to help you with testing during the next couple of weeks.
1. Start getting a good night's rest now, not just the night before the test. Research shows that children your age perform their best when they've had ten hours of sleep. That means you have to get in bed pretty early.
2. Eat a good breakfast the morning of testing - something filling and higher in protein. Try to avoid sugary things because your body burns the sugar very quickly and you'll begin feeling hungry again or may even feel a little dizzy.
3. Before you begin your test, take a few deep breaths to calm yourself or think of something that relaxes you like a sailboat on the water or a kite flying in the air.
4. Read each test item carefully and look at all of your answer choices before choosing one. Always make the best guess you can if you don't know the answer right away. You can usually narrow it down to two answers.
5. You're not expected to know all of the answers so don't get upset if you can't get all of them. Just try your best. Remember, a test is like a "snapshot" of where you are at this time and like the pictures in your photo album at home, your test scores will evolve and change during your time in school.
You have a lot of people cheering you on so just give it your best shot. I'm confident that you'll do just fine.
