Use this Jeopardy PowerPoint game to review reading skills with your students before state testing. Each question has a small paragraph for the students to read before answering the question. The questions resemble the ones the students will face during standardized testing in the spring. Click the board after each question for a check mark to appear by the correct answer.
Here are the following five categories:
Fact and Opinion
There is also an answer sheet included for the students to record their answers if you want every student to answer each question.
Check the preview out! Please rate this product and enjoy!
This is superb! The passages are great! My students and I learned some facts that we didn't know before by reading the passages in the game! Thanks for helping provide a FUN way to prepare for upcoming state tests!

Great way to review for standardized tests. Thanks!
I did like the questions and cute design of the program. However, I was unhappy with the fact that it will not mark which questions have already been chosen after you return to the main board to choose a new question. I emailed the seller about this and she stated that students would have to have printouts of the main board and check them off themselves during the game (see the "ask a question" section). I have downloaded several other jeopardy-type powerpoints where selected questions are greyed-out and this makes the game run much more smoothly, especially in a whole group setting. This should probably be mentioned in the product description so the buyer is aware before they decide to purchase it.
I'd really appreciate it if you would respond to my post on May 8th asking about whether or not the questions on the main screen are supposed to be somehow marked as to whether or not they have been selected or if the students are supposed to just mark them off on the printed answer sheet. I just want to make sure that there wasn't some sort of glitch when I downloaded the file.
I'm sorry I didn't see your other question on the eighth. After you click a question there isn't a way to know that you've answered it unless you keep up with what has or has not been answered. I'm sorry. I wish I knew of a way for that to happen.
I used the powerpoint in presentation mode. When I click on the arrow it does take me back to the gameboard slide with all of the categories and numbers. My question is after a student selects a question and we click on it, answer it and then click on the arrow to go back to the main screen, will it show that that particular question has been chosen? In other words, will it be "X'd out" or "grayed out"? Or are you saying that the only way to know if it's been selected is if the kids mark it off on a printed answer sheet?
Thanks for letting me know! I was planning on using this tomorrow.
I just downloaded your Jeopardy Reading Comprehension powerpoint and noticed that it doesn't mark when a question has been chosen after you go back to the gameboard. Am I doing something wrong? When playing this with a class, how do we all know which ones have already been selected?
The arrow should work. It worked with my class last month. Make sure the PowerPoint is in presentation mode. You may have to use your mouse on the computer and not the pen on the ActivBoard or SmartBoard. I printed off the answer sheets for each kid to answer, and they were able to look at each sheet to know what had or had not been answered. I hope this all makes sense.
I taught two years in fourth grade and loved every minute of it. I'm taking a new leap and jumping into the library! I'm very excited about this adventure! Be on the lookout for a lot of reading activities from K-5 :)
