Do You Have this Testing Secret Weapon?
Last week we began our state testing for our 3rd-5th grade students. We started with the 3rd grade group since we have to rotate children through our computer lab to do online testing. Sadly, many of the students were coughing and we used almost two entire Kleenex boxes of tissue by the end of the week. Because of this I decided to bring in my testing secret weapon!
(Star Wars music playing in the background. Enter: Diffuser and Young Living Peppermint Oil!)
This helped students breathe better, freshened up the testing area, and best of all, helped kids focus on their test! The proctors also mentioned how well they could breathe while smelling the Young Living peppermint oil! Since I have been made the testing coordinator this year, I needed a little happiness to help calm my emotional stress. Peppermint helps me feel happy :), so I brought the oil for myself just as much as for my students!
There you have it folks! My testing secret weapon!!!
