Standardized testing season is quickly approaching...
so I am joining in on the Standardized Testing Linky Party!
Here are a few things I have found useful in the past few years...
1.Online Test Banks:
I have found that Massachusettes releases 50% or so of the questions/answers/topics each year.
If you click on the site below, you will be brought to the log of questions broken down by year, grade, and subject from years 2005-2010.**
**I don't teach in Massachusettes, but I did find that many of the questions overlapped**
2. Lakeshore Learning Test Prep Cards
This breaks up the monotony of test prep. The cards are fun to flip and keep the students busy. Can be used as a station or as whole group activity (if you buy enough..)
- I bought both a 4th and 5th grade set for my 6th grade resource class as a review of old skills.
- I printed a blank bubble sheet free from online and had them bubble their answers as they went.
- I used it as a center during class for about two weeks...each day having the students got pick a new set to complete as a timed "warm up".
