“Let It Go” to relieve test anxietyCreative Kidstuff
These fifth grade teachers from Minnesota created a video to help ease their students anxiety for the upcoming MN Comprehensive Assessments. Needless to say, it was a hit with the students!
“Kids internalize pressure from various sources about what these tests mean, and it’s just a long time to sit and focus. And they happen pretty regularly, so, unfortunately, they really can cause stress,” said Michelle Morse, one of the teachers involved. “We just wanted to remind our students that they are ready for this and they don’t have to stress and that it’s just one snapshot in time, and they’ve already grown anyway.”
