Test Chant


Found in: test & quizzes

I have a chant that we do before we take a test, whether one of the state tests or a weekly spelling test, to relax my students. It's a little silly, but the kids do ask for it if I forget:

We're going to take a test [clap, clap]
We're going to do our best [clap, clap]
We'll do the ones we know
And we'll try on the rest [clap, clap].

We'll work very carefully [hold up one finger, preparing to count to three]
We'll work very thoughtfully [hold up another finger]
We'll work very neatly [hold up a third finger]
And then we'll be THROUGH [say with emphasis, cross hands in front of you and pull them apart and down].

We're going to take a test (clap, clap]
We're going to do our best (clap, clap]
We'll do the ones we know
And we'll try on the rest [clap, clap].

[chant softly and fade away]
We won't hurry.
We won't worry.
We won't hurry.
We won't worry...”
