Test-Taking Tips

Since we are starting standardized testing this week, I thought it would be helpful to post some positive test-taking skills.  These are taken from a book I would recommend for kids called, “Tyler Tames the Testing Tiger.”  Make sure your reinforce to your kids to stay calm and just try their best. Good luck!
