ISTEP+ (Indiana Statewide Testing of Education Progress Plus) testing begins next week! Every year, grades 3, 8 and 10 are mandated by the state to take a multitude of tests over several days in an effort to assess each student’s skills learned in the subjects of language arts, mathematics, social studies and science. This is a REALLY big deal. For 3rd graders, it is their first “go around” as it sets par for the course of learning expectations and standards for those subjects and the development of essential life skills throughout the rest of their primary and high school education. ISTEP not only identifies areas of strength, it also identifies areas that need to be strengthened. In short, it’s pretty important. So…how can we help these kids do well? Calm their nerves? Reduce the anxiety of test taking? Whether or not they’ve realized it, they’ve been preparing for this test since the day they were born…the first day they started preschool…kindergarten…1st grade…2nd…and 3rd. Our jobs are very simple. We offer support, reassurance, encouragement and we CELEBRATE through it all! ALL of the teachers and staff at Corydon Elementary are TOP NOTCH! This year, they prepared a video for the 3rd graders to PUMP THEM UP!! We wanted to share it with all of you to enjoy and show you how they CELEBRATE the successes of our children and offer their support & encouragement. You guys are truly amazing!

In addition, we want to give recognition to the 2nd graders who held a Heart-Mart selling Valentines presents they crafted with their very own hands and hearts. All proceeds were used toward buying testing treats for our 3rd graders! The treats will be given out during test week along with notes of encouragement. The teachers – both 2nd grade and 3rd grade – have shared that the kids absolutely LOVE not only the receiving of the treats…but the making and giving. Talk about heart-warming!! Now that’s the definition of “classy” and demonstrating TWO particular essential skills of life - APPRECIATION and KINDNESS. ~applause~
There are all sorts of information on the internet for helping prepare children for weekly spelling tests to the bigger tests like ISTEP. Here are a few helpful links to some articles of interest and information that may be beneficial to you and your student during this time and feel free to surf the net for further information.
WE WISH ALL OF OUR 3RD GRADE CLASSES AND TEACHERS THE VERY BEST NEXT WEEK! YOU GOT THIS!
