TCAP Rhyme Time Myrna Parker Professional School Counselor Cordova Elementary School TCAP time is on its way, That is why I’m here today. I came to help you out, you’ll see, Just open your ears and listen to me. I’ve hidden in this little rhyme, some tips to help come TCAP time. When I’m done, just use your head to tell me all the things I said. Ready, on your mark, let’s go! I’ll tell you things you need to know. Come each day, arrive on time, missing school is a crime. Go to bed early the night before. Do not stay up to watch one show more. Eat a good breakfast to feed your brain. Going to school hungry is such a pain. Wear your glasses if you need them. You’ll miss the questions if you can’t read them. An eraser and pencil will see you through, to mark the answers that are true. Make clean marks in the little bubbles, that way you can avoid some troubles. Erase stray marks as you go along, or you will get the answers wrong. Following directions and doing your best, will certainly help you pass the test. Work carefully, quickly, quietly too. When the time is up, then you’re through. That’s what you’ll need to do your best. Now I’m through and it’s your go. Tell me all the things you know.
