Spark Motivation Saturday-Keep Motivation During Test Review

   Hello! I'm linking up with Head over Heals for Teaching for another Spark Motivation Saturday.
Next week is our state testing so I spent the last week reviewing skills in reading and math. (How boring is that) I needed a way to keep the kids interested and also work hard..... a delicate balance. My kiddos are artistic and like to create things. So I decided to pull that into my review.

      I reviewed character traits with the story Smelly Socks.

    The main character in the story, Tina, has a strong personality.  My children found the story hilarious and enjoyed picking out character traits for Tina.  The children wrote the character traits on a sock  pattern and supported the traits with evidence from the story. Then they designed their own smelly socks and shared them with the class.

 Have a wonderful weekend!
