How do you prepare students for academic success during standardized testing?

You make parody videos to motivate them, of course!



Teachers from Gardendale Elementary in Edgewood Independent School District put together a special rendition of Bruno Mars' "Finesse" remix with Cardi B to get students hyped about the STAAR test.

Some students got to show off their acting and dance skills, too.

Plus, the video was full of '90s fashion – and we all know how much San Antonio loves the '90s.
