¨ Make sure your child gets plenty of rest. According to research, children ages 7 through 12 need at least nine hours of sleep a night.
¨ Feed your child a healthy breakfast with plenty of protein and carbohydrates for “thinking” energy. Avoid sugary or greasy foods the day of the test.
¨ Send your child to school with positive words of encouragement.
¨ If your child wears glasses, make sure he or she doesn’t leave them at home that day!
¨ Make sure your child is wearing comfortable clothes during testing.
¨ Help your child to have a stress free morning! Get them up early enough so they are not rushed.
¨ Make sure your child is at school on time. Your child should be in the classroom by 8:30am. The test will begin soon after the tardy bell rings. Students who arrive after testing has begun will not be admitted to class.
