Since then, I have created more of my "Don't Stress The Test" colouring pages as I have been receiving such positive feedback about how students have been finding them so helpful! Here are some comments from teachers around the world who have been using these in their own classrooms across all age groups:
- Playing relaxing music as they enter the room - helps those shaky nerves!
- If possible, have water / snacks available. It might not always be feasible, but providing some fruit and a bottle of water before taking the test really ensures everyone is appropriately nourished.
- Decorate the room with motivational quotes and if your school permits, allow students to bring in a lucky charm that is sentimental to them. This can be a real comfort!
