I found out about Kid President from another blogger friend and let me just say .... LOVE!
My third graders LOVE Kid President and especially his PEP TALK video. Have you seen it? Go check it out NOW! (please!)
My students know the video word for word. I love how they talk about "his fluency and use of interesting word choices," as well as how motivating he is!
With State Testing I knew I wanted to use HIS words of encouragement for my kiddos. I created simple cards with some of Kid President's most famous sayings on them. I cut them out and taped a simple piece of candy on it and placed them on their desks before each test.
I also created some posters of his most famous quotes from "Pep Talk" and hung them around the classroom!
The kids LOVED the notes! Hopefully they will help you out as well! You can get them HERE! I posted them on TPT as a freebie!
Good Luck with State Testing!
