Test Chant


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...”
