FCAT Testing Tips:
Help ensure that your child will "test their best" with these testing tips:
1.Encourage your child to find a way to relax, by taking deep breaths and imagining a safe & happy place.
2. Encourage your child to have a positive saying to repeat to him/herself, like:
"I know this information and I will test my best!" or "I think I can, I think I can!"
3. Remind your child to read each question twice to ensure that they understand what is being asked, before selecting an answer.
4. Remind your child to think of all of the good information their teacher has shared with them about test taking skills, and that they are simply building on their success during FCAT test time.
4. Help your child prepare for the test physically, by helping them get a good night's rest, and to eat a good breakfast to start their day.
If you have any specific questions about the content of material being tested, check with your child's teacher .
