TEST TAKERS - HELP FOR THE FRIGHTENED


 
TEST TAKERS – HELP FOR THE FRIGHTENED
By
Linda M. Penn
 
            The time is arriving – no, not just Spring Break!  It’s getting time for those pesky, time-consuming, end-of-the-year accountability tests.  Was it just three months ago that I wrote about teachers and students and the crunch time for learning being upon them?  (See my Blog dated December 28, 2015 “Crunch Time – The Heat is On!”)
 
            Teachers, you and the kiddos may have about another a month or so to put the finishing touches on test-prep activities.  Parents, you have to get ready too!  Start looking for those test-anxiety symptoms in your children:  excessive sweating, headaches, throwing up, diarrhea, irritability (well…moreso than normal!), and the most famous of all – the stomachache.  So what are you going to do to help your frightened test-takers at home?
 
-       Reinforce the teacher’s efforts to prepare the students.  If you talk negatively about the teacher and testing, the student’s attitude will be flawed.
-       Calmly inquire of your child about any test preparations at school and help the child with any review work that seems necessary.
-       Practice relaxation techniques – deep breaths, counting to 10, closing eyes and focusing on a calm scene, prayer.
-       Reminding your children how proud you are of them and how you know they will try their best on tests.
-       Imparting confidence to the kids – “You have studied and practiced, so you are ready for testing!”
-       Explain it is okay to feel anxious about upcoming tests.  “You have to be brave when that sinking negative feeling comes upon you.  Refocus to something positive.”
-       Avoid any confrontation with the kids on test days - if possible!  If you can hold off with the “it’s time to get that room of yours cleaned up,” or “pick up those dirty towels – NOW,” please do so. 
 
Somehow, teachers and parents, try to keep yourself POSITIVE, so the kids
will be also!
