Find the Test LadyTM Sisters on a Bulletin Board

The Test LadyTM Sisters are expanding their scope of influence. First, the Smekens Literacy Retreat. Now, their pictures are showing up in Smoky Row Elementary School, Carmel Clay Schools! Barb Mahnesmith used Kristina Smekens' Test Lady script to spur her students on to remember what each Test Lady Sister wants them to include in their writing. So the Test Lady Sisters are helping students picture an audience and learn how to improve their prompt writing. They are busy girls!

Barb Mahnesmith's Test Lady Sisters Bulletin BoardPrudence Prompt of the Test Lady Sisters

Barb created simple picture pages by copying and pasting each Test Lady Sister description from the script at the top of each handout. As Barb introduced each of the seven key elements, she had the students draw the Test Lady Sister's portrait that went with the description. The pictures tell the story! Check out some of the great likenesses provided by Barb's class. What a great bulletin board to help students picture an audience for their state assessment writing.

Barb even sent the handout set to share! Thanks, Barb! This makes the Test Lady Sisters very happy!
