Test review Olympics - love love love this idea to keep kids motivated throughout the boring practice tests
School- Behavior management PUNCH CARD! I think a variation of this would be a good motivator to keep kids engaged during testing too!
Mrs. Kestner's Kreations: Reward Punch Cards
I made these owls for my kids to decorate their desk before the FCAT writing test... I'm sure it motivated them!
I have two classes so I made these motivational mini notes for testing time very small (18 to a page), so if you're looking for a tiny encouraging note, these might help! There are 4 different designed messages with separate notes in Spanish, also!
Start off the New Year on a positive note with these can shaped, "I-Can" motivational mailboxes. Great for state testing season! FREE!

The Nest Effect: Motivation & Rewards in My Classroom -- I love Vistaprint! And I hate tickets or class cash. The punch card idea is nice, maybe along with the class chart. Of course, instead of spelling, it'll be math drills! Vistaprint, Business Cards, School, Classroom Reward, Print Busi, Reward System, Punch Card, Vista Print, Teacher
Love the spelling test 100% punchcard! Gotta love vistaprint! Really cute idea - probably not for my kids this year (too young - will probably lose it) but good to keep in mind for when I get a higher grade.
