Standardized testing is an incredibly stressful time for students. While it doesn’t necessarily count against their grades in school, it’s an assessment that many analyze to view a child’s ability.
Keeping this in mind, Chandhi Langford, a fifth grade teacher at Evergreen Avenue Elementary School in Woodbury, New Jersey, chose to do something surprise. When students walked into class the morning of PARRC standardized testing, they were shocked to find handwritten notes on each of their desks.
The best part? Each note is personalized and addressed to each individual student.
