Candy-gram encouragement for kids taking tests

    Posted by  ·  March 11, 2009

    Our kids are taking part in state testing this week and my cool friend Meegan had this cute idea to send a sweet note of encouragement to school.

    “We know that you are no ‘dum dum’ so use your ‘smarties’ on your test! Good Luck!”


    You can download the note card if you like (I included a blank card also). Print on card-stock, hot glue on the candy, hide in their notebook and you are good to go.

      I'm a retired teacher and had a parent that was clever like you are. You have some different ones too.

      What an awesome idea! If my son were younger, I would have made these for this class as a pre-jitter test reliever for I-Step testing.

      Such a cute idea! I might give these out to my 5th graders for their big math review test next month.

      When I was in 6th grade, my science teacher would tape smarties to our papers if we had As and would tape a Dum-Dum if we failed. It was always fun.
