Tackling Test Stress Tip 11: Be on Time

The number one movie in the United States right now is Alice in Wonderland. I’ve not seen it yet, but look forward to seeing it in all of its 3D glory. One of the most memorable characters in Lewis Carroll’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the White Rabbit.  In the Disney movie (from 1951) the White Rabbit is best known for the little tune he sang at the beginning – “I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!” I wonder if he does this in the new movie. I hope that the same anxious antics are there at least because he could really help students see that being late causes stress. The White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland is a good example of why we want to encourage students to be on time for school, especially on important test days. Encourage your students to avoid being the White Rabbit!
