Prepping for the EOGs

The End-of-Grade tests are rapidly coming up for students in North Carolina public schools. At one Chatham County Schools middle school, the students had a creative way of preparing.

Last week eighth-grade students at SAGE Academy participated in an EOG stress relief and review sponge throw. The students were divided into three teams and worked together by group to answer questions from teachers.

These questions covered test material, as well as test-taking tips and strategies.  If a group answered correctly, an individual member then got a chance to throw a sponge at Principal Daniel Haithcox or eighth-grade teacher Robert Templin.

“This was a fun way to review and focus for their EOG tests,”Haithcox said. “The students and teachers have worked really hard to prepare.  The least I could do was stand if as a target.  I think we all had a good time.”
