This week, the third graders in my school began their state testing, PSSA. It's the first year in the past eight years, that I haven't been a test administrator. I am not missing it at all! The thing I'm loving, though, is spoiling our 3rd grade buddy class and their teacher. If your school doesn't do this, consider it! It's so fun for everyone!
Here are a few fun things that my students and are are doing this week for our sweet buddies.
Day 1- With our first grade buddies, my kids wrote letters to our 3rd grade friends. I love doing something that's personalized and not generic. You can download the papers that I used here.
here on TPT. I printed them on card stock and attached the pennies with a glue dot. Each one of my kids signed them from our class. Super cute, super easy...and it's not candy.
Day 4- Each one of my kids wrote an encouraging note to a 3rd grader on a banana. They thought this was so cool! #easytoplease I bought the bananas pretty green, so their teacher could save them for another day if necessary. Again, this was super easy, and it wasn't candy.

Do you do any thing special for your school's big kids or for your own test takers? I'd love to hear some new ideas.
Thanks for stopping by!
