A Treat for My Favorite Test Takers

Whether you're a proponent or an opponent of standardized testing, whether you're opting out or opting in, there's no denying millions of elementary and middle school children will be taking standardized tests this spring.  My child happens to be one of them.

Today starts the New York State ELA exams for students in grades 3-8.  This is day one of three days of ELA testing.  G seems focused and ready.  Now that he's in fourth grade, I think he has a better understanding of what the test will be like, and he'll be able to better manage his time this year.  He knows that we expect him to work hard, but he isn't stressed about it.  He knows we're proud of him no matter what.

To help ease the sting of the tests for his classmates, G and I put together some testing treats for his class.  We decided on the new Lego version available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  It was a difficult choice between Stars Wars and Legos, but Legos won in the end.

Aren't they cute!

Here's a look at the treats as they came together on the dining room table last night.  We went with granola bars, Smarties, and Butterfingers.  You'll have to excuse the bright Easter tablecloth. Apparently we don't have any other spring ones left from last year.

Here's my proud guy with his box of yummy goodness ready to take to school.  He wasn't too keen on posing for this shot.  I guess he's gotten to "that" age now.

If you're looking for some quick treat labels, you can find all my versions in my TpT store.  I have them individually or in one supersized bundle!
