Well it's that time of year for us here in New Mexico... the NMSBA. Our state standardized testing begins this Thursday and runs through the following week. A few years back some of the staff at our school made this Rock the Test video. It was a hit. We even had t-shirts for the staff made that say "You Rock East Picacho!" hence why my blog is called 2nd Grade Rocks! I thought I would share the video with everyone.
I hope you find it useful or at least funny!
Only our 3-5th grade students take the test. However I'll be helping administer it since I have a student teacher. Our whole school really emphasizes the test and even our K-2 kids get to participate in a half day of water activities after it's all over for having good attendance during testing.
