Transcript

  • 1. Rocking the ISAT
  • 2. Rocking the ISAT: RELAXATION STRATEGIES <ul><li>DEEP BREATH </li></ul><ul><li>Take a deep breath. </li></ul><ul><li>Hold it for about 3 seconds. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, let it out all at once. As you let it out, let your jaw relax, your shoulders relax and think “calm.” </li></ul><ul><li>Let your teeth remain slightly apart, with enough space between your front teeth to fit a pencil. </li></ul><ul><li>EQUALIZED BREATHING </li></ul><ul><li>Take 4 seconds to breathe in and 4 seconds to breathe out. Count “1 one-thousand, 2 one-thousand, 3 one-thousand, 4 one-thousand.” </li></ul><ul><li>Do this 4 or 5 times. </li></ul><ul><li>ABDOMINAL BREATHING </li></ul><ul><li>Put one hand on your chest and the other hand on your belly button. </li></ul><ul><li>Now, breathe so that only the hand on your belly moves – as you breathe in, the hand moves out and moves in as you exhale. The upper hand on your chest does not move. </li></ul><ul><li>Watch your hands as you breathe and see if you can breathe with only the lower hand moving. </li></ul>
  • 3. Rocking the ISAT: SIMPLE STRETCHES <ul><li>GENTLE HEAD ROLLS </li></ul><ul><li>Gently roll your head in a circle about 3 times to the right and 3 times to the left. </li></ul><ul><li>Roll slowly and gently. </li></ul><ul><li>SHOULDER ROLL </li></ul><ul><li>Raise your shoulders as if trying to touch your ears with them. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, move your shoulders back and let them drop. </li></ul><ul><li>Up, back, down, and around. Do about 5 of these. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep your jaw relaxed and breathe easily while doing these. </li></ul><ul><li>ARMS UP AND BACK </li></ul><ul><li>Put your arms up over your head and interlace your fingers. </li></ul><ul><li>Now turn your palms toward the ceiling and include two moves; push up toward the ceiling and push your arms lightly back. </li></ul><ul><li>Feel the stretch in your upper arms, shoulders, and upper back. </li></ul>
  • 4. Rocking the ISAT: helpful tips <ul><li>THE NIGHT BEFORE… </li></ul><ul><li>Go to bed on time. </li></ul><ul><li>Solve any problems that you are having with your family or friends before the day of the test. </li></ul><ul><li>Talk to your parents about any concerns or worries that you might have about the test. </li></ul><ul><li>The Morning of the Test </li></ul><ul><li>Eat a good breakfast. </li></ul><ul><li>Dress in layers so that you can take layers off or put them on, depending on the temperature of the room. </li></ul><ul><li>Bring a nutritious snack to school, even if you normally don’t. Avoid salty foods that may make you thirsty later on while testing. </li></ul><ul><li>Bring a water bottle to school the day of the test. Water makes up more of the brain (with estimates of 90%) than of any other organ of the body. Drinking some water before and during the test can help &amp;quot;grease the wheels.” Drinking water is very important before any stressful situation, such as tests! </li></ul><ul><li>Think of what you will do to relax after you get home from school. </li></ul><ul><li>THINK POSITIVE! </li></ul>Rocking the ISAT: Helpful Tips
  • 5. Rocking the ISAT: TEST TAKING STRATEGIES <ul><li>MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS </li></ul><ul><li>Read the question and all answer choices before marking anything. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not change your answers unless you are very uncertain about your first answer choice…trust your first instinct! </li></ul><ul><li>Try to answer every question. Make the most intelligent guess you can if you are unsure of an answer. </li></ul><ul><li>PROCESS OF ELIMINATION </li></ul><ul><li>If you are stuck on a question, get rid of any answers that you know are wrong. </li></ul><ul><li>If you can eliminate some of the wrong answers, your chance of choosing the right answer is much greater. </li></ul><ul><li>EXTENDED RESPONSE – Reading and writing </li></ul><ul><li>Read the question first! By doing this, you will know what you are looking for as you read! </li></ul><ul><li>Read the article or story twice so that you are sure that you found all of the clues. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember…I E I E </li></ul><ul><li>I- Idea- Turn the question around </li></ul><ul><li>E- Evidence - Find support in the text. </li></ul><ul><li>I- Interpretation- Connect support to idea. </li></ul><ul><li>E- Extension- Make a connection or tell what you have learned. </li></ul>
  • 6. What I Did Why I Did It <ul><li>EXTENDED RESPONSE – MATH </li></ul><ul><li>Make a t-chart to help organize your thoughts </li></ul><ul><li>Show all of your work! </li></ul><ul><li>Label EVERYTHING! Label! Label! Label! </li></ul><ul><li>MATH </li></ul><ul><li>When using scratch paper, double check to make sure that you have copied the problem correctly from the test booklet! </li></ul><ul><li>Line up the numbers correctly (ones, tens, hundreds) when you are adding or subtracting. </li></ul><ul><li>If your answer does not match one of the choices, reread the problem, recopy the numbers, and try solving it again. </li></ul><ul><li>CHECK YOUR WORK </li></ul><ul><li>If you finish early, check to make sure you have answered all of the questions. </li></ul><ul><li>Double check your answers to see if you made any “silly mistakes.” </li></ul><ul><li>Check to make sure that you have filled in the bubbles completely and that you have erased any extra marks well. </li></ul><ul><li>PACE YOURSELF </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t spend too much time on any one question. Do your best and then move on. </li></ul><ul><li>RELAX </li></ul><ul><li>If your arm gets tired during testing, it is probably due to the grip that you have on your pencil. Relax the grip and give those muscles a break! </li></ul><ul><li>Go through a relaxation strategy or two. Do not do anything that will disturb others. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember, it is okay not to know everything ! The test will have some difficult questions on it. Not all of the questions are supposed to be easy. Just do the best you can! </li></ul>

  • 11. The ISAT Song (to the tune of &amp;quot;I Will Survive&amp;quot;) At first I was afraid, I was petrified. Kept thinkin&apos; I could never pass it even if I tried. But then I spent so many nights Thinkin&apos; hard and thinkin&apos; long, And I grew strong, And I learned how to carry on. Now ISAT is back, from outer space. I just walked in to find that test staring me right in the face. I know that I can really rock. I know that I have got the key. And now I know it&apos;s all because My teachers taught the strategies. Go on now, go, walk to that door. Just walk on through now, &apos;Cause you&apos;re not frightened anymore. Weren&apos;t you the test that tried to throw me off the trail? Did I crumble? Did you think I&apos;d lay down and fail? Oh no not I. I will survive. Oh, as long as I know the strategies, I know I&apos;ll stay alive. I&apos;ve got all my life to live, I&apos;ve got all my time to give and I&apos;ll survive. I will survive. Hey, Hey! Adapted by: Ms. Batchu
