Standardized Testing

Are standardized tests causing you to sweat? What are you doing to prepare students to successfully take these tests? Here are some resources I have used to prepare literacy students to get better acquainted with the multiple choice Part-A and Part-B format.

Literacy: Many of these standardized tests like the PARCC test take long pieces of literature and informational texts and have students analyze by answering multiple choice questions supported with evidence (Part A and Part B questions). This multiple choice prep helps give students a chance to practice answering questions after reading picture books The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch and Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens. Both of these books are available on Tumblebooks as well for students to work and listen to the texts independently or in a small group. Click the images to view in my store. They are both {FREEBIES}.
