As high-stakes testing season approaches, the classroom can become a whirlwind of test prep. With these tests drawing nearer and nearer, it’s important for teachers to focus on more than just content because there's more to being prepared than just knowing all the answers. Students must be able to deal with stress and anxiety, have good studying habits and practice the act of taking a test itself. But how do you address these skills in the classroom? We asked teachers this very question, and here’s what we found.
We recently shared tips and strategies for using Flocabulary for test prep brain breaks. While Flocab is flexible enough to use in short spurts for a breather between prep, many of our features support rigorous test prep, too.
Test taking (and preparation!) can be stressful. In the midst of testing season--and all year long--Flocabulary is here to help. Not only do our 800+ units support your students with understanding core content, but we have several units to prepare students with relevant test-taking skills and terms. That said, taking an occasional brain break provides an opportunity for students to relieve stress from tests while still learning. Flocabulary has plenty of resources to help your students take a breather from test prep while still keeping their gears turning!
