It's Testing Time!

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. 


  1. Love the video- what a great idea! :)

    I'm also a Book Whisperer and try to create a love of reading in my kiddos!

    I'm your newest follower and I have some freebies at my new blog! Come on over and visit! :)


  2. This video is too funny! Looks like a good time for the kids :) Good luck with testing!
