Most students exchange notes in class, but Chandni Langford, a fifth-grade teacher in New Jersey’s Woodbury School System, decided to turn the tables (No pun intended) and share a personalized note on each of her student’s desks.
The reason? They were about to take their annual standarized test known as “PARCC”
“To motivate her 5th grade students, Mrs. Langford at Evergreen Avenue prepared inspirational, growth-mindset messages for every one of her students,” explained Woodbury City Public Schools on Facebook.
“Each personalized note was written in dry erase marker on students’ desks so they could be cleaned up prior to starting PARRC.”
She also placed two donut holes on top of yellow paper with the message “Donut stress. Take your time and do your best”
