Parent Support Strategies for Use at Home With Your Child
Review together what your child has learned so far this year in Reading, Math, Social Studies, and Science. Go over lesson or chapter tests your child has brought home.
Show your child how to refer back to the reading passage to find the answers. Children who prove their answers do better on tests.
Remind your child to answer all of the questions. Teach your child how to eliminate the wrong answers. In most questions, 2 answers are obviously not correct.
Advise your child to read all directions TWO TIMES! Extra time can be given to allow students to finish the test.
Don’t stress out! Encourage your students to stop and breathe. Stress blocks our ability to think clearly!
Remind your child to put forth his or her best effort, to remain on task, and to keep MOTIVATED during the entire test!
Testing is stressful! Try to minimize the stress by planning a family game night, or preparing your child’s favorite meal! Celebrate Success!
