Does this help

I believe so. It can be used either before the test or right before retesting.

Hi I have a question
April 8, 2014

Does the answer key include how you work out the equations to get to the answers? Thanks

Hi Mrs. Earnest!

I teach in a school district that used you as a consultant the year before I started. I went to a few of your workshops and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your work. I was wondering if you sold all of your 7th grade stuff as a bundle? I have bought the countdown to STAAR and a few other things but would like to have it all. My email is kellydhurst@gmail.com if it will be easier to address this via email.
March 31, 2014
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kelly,

First, thanks for your kind words. No, I do not sell anything by the bundles. I am however slowly adding everything that I created over six years to the store.

I think I've bought all of your third grade Staar test prep items..... I love them!! Do you have anymore? Very interested and thank you for all of your hard work. :)
February 19, 2014
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
No for right now, that is it. I am going to start working on the new TEKS here soon.
February 21, 2014

My school is interested in purchasing your 7th Grade STAAR 20 day review but TpT is not on our vendor list. Is there another way that we could purchase it with district money?
January 16, 2014
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Unfortunately no. However, when you buy it from this site, you can purchase multiple licenses.

I would love to buy your books for Texas Staar prep,but I want to be sure about how I can use them. I can make copies of the pages or a booklet for each student, correct? Can I put the link to the booklet on my website for students to copy at home, due to a copy budget limit that I have? I want to be sure I can get full use out of the books before I spend the money. Thanks so much!!
January 12, 2014
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Sorry, I never received an email that you had asked a question! You can make copies, but you cannot put them on a website unless the site is very strictly limited to school access.

Ralynn,

Have you ever considered doing the Prior Knowledge Assessments for younger grades? 3rd-5th? Thanks!
September 30, 2013

T Mom  (TpT Seller) re: 4th Grade 20 Days To STAAR
Has anyone asked you for this in Spanish? I bought this from you and it is wonderful. I ended up translating it to Spanish so all my kids could use it.
July 3, 2013

Question: : in the picture on your Positive Slope poster showing the formula y = 3/2 x - 1.2, shouldn't the rise be 3 and the run 2?

Love the posters but would like that error corrected before I purchase.

Thanks.

Let me take a look at it this weekend.

These look good! In the preview, it says "Standard From" have you fixed this for the version that you are selling?

Okay, I have fixed it.

I teach 3rd grade and love your stuff! I have a daughter who struggles in math and she's in 6th grade. This has always been her weakness of course she's making straight A's but I'm very concerned about STAAR and she is a worrier so she's totally stressed and worried she won't pass . I wanted to ask you what would be the best thing for me to get of yours to work with her the next few weeks, I saw several things for 6th grade but I know it's not possible to use them all so what do you feel would be the most beneficial to her? Thanks , you do a great job!

Have you bought the 6th Grade 20 Days to STAAR?
April 3, 2013

Ralynn, I am the person who purchased Shark Research and it wouldn't complete download. You asked me to send email so you could send it to me. My email is djpeacoc@garlandisd.net

Thank you:)

On Day 12 of the 5th Grade 20 Days to STAAR, problem 3, the answer key gives 7/8 as the answer to the problem 8/9 - 1/8.

Jeer Cabahug  (TpT Seller) re: 8th Grade 20 Days To STAAR
can I buy this and share it with my 8th grade teachers too?
March 6, 2013
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
You would just have to purchase the additional licenses which I believe are half off.
March 8, 2013

Helen Robinson  (TpT Seller) re: 5th Grade 20 Days To STAAR
I am identifying each TEK for the questions on your 20 days to STAAR for 5th grade. Before I continue, I want to see if I am re-inventing the wheel. If no one has done this already, do you mind if I share it on TPT? It would be free since I have not shared anything before.
February 23, 2013
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
I would prefer that you not do it, since you would have to show the questions to show the TEK.

Thanks for understanding.
February 24, 2013

Is there an assessment that comes as part of your 20 days to STAAR?

Thanks
February 21, 2013
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
No, there is not. However their grades should be getting better as they get closer to the end of the 20 days.
February 22, 2013

are these different problems than the 20 day 8th grade
February 11, 2013
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Yes, these are different.

Kimberly H. re: Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Bingo
I looked at the preview and I am a bit confused about how this game works. Are the student cards empty and they fill them out before the teacher calls out the first card? What do you mean by "Starting with problem number 1, tell your students to write that item on the board and immediately strike it out?" Thanks!
February 10, 2013
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Yes, each student is creating their own Bingo Card. The first time you play, guide the students through writing the answer from #1 on their card, and then striking #1 out so that they know that they already have that number on the card. Hope this helps!
February 11, 2013

Jill Aldridge  (TpT Seller) re: 3rd Grade 20 Days To STAAR

How many problems are on the 8th grade math staar example problems
January 23, 2013

The STAAR packet has one problem per Readiness Standard. The STAAR 20 Days has ten problems each day for 20 days.

November 8, 2012

katy dahlstrom  (TpT Seller) re: Double Step Board Game (Solving Two Step Equations with Integers).
I bought the double step board game and when I download it there is only one page. I see on the selling page that there are three pages to this document. Am I missing pages? I got the board page, but that was it.

Thanks.
November 2, 2012
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
The other two pages were the cover page and the directions page. If you want me to email those to you I will. I am very sorry about that.

It is jlynne6974@gmail.com

Thanks so much!
October 21, 2012

Do you have or have you seen a game etc... that has the kids match the formula/expression etc... to solve the word problem given? Specifically, circles, area, perimeter and volume. I'm looking for one on circles and one on the others to reinforce this during center time with my kids. I love your products and can use so many of them in my class. This is an area we struggle in (especially the inscribed circles) and there is a need for a product of this sort. Thanks for your time!
October 20, 2012
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Actually I do! I just have not posted it yet. I can post it by the end of this week and I will email you to let you know that I have posted it if you give me your email address.

Hello from San Antonio...

Either I'm blind or it's been a really long day.... I can't seem to find how many questions come in this packet.

September 21, 2012
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
There is one question per Readiness Strand. So somewhere, between 9 and 12. But each question has multiple TEKS built in.

April 13, 2012
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
It was originally presented (in a seminar) as a whole packet for grades 3-5. I pulled the questions out separately to sell here on Teachers Pay Teachers.
April 14, 2012

Megan B. re: 3rd Grade 20 Days To STAAR
Do you have 5th Grade 20 Days to STAAR? I haven't seen it.
February 24, 2012
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
Yes, I do. I will be posting grades 5-8 this weekend.
February 25, 2012

Where did you get the questions? Did you make them up, if so what did you use. Just asking because there is not much out there for STAAR.

Thanks
February 9, 2012
Ralynn Ernest  (TpT Seller)
I am so sorry! I must have missed this question from you. When I created the questions I had the released items from the state in front of me. I analyzed how many steps per question they asked and I compared the supporting and readiness standards.

Sonia L. re: 4th Grade STAAR Math Example Problems
Ralynn,
When I looked at the preview, there was a perimeter problem to measure an index card; however, there was no index card on the paper. Will there be one when I download the entire thing?
Thank you for taking the time to do this. Anything STAAR related in 4th grade would be fabulous for me to get my hands on. This is turning out to be such a mystery test!
Sincerely,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As a teacher, I taught 7th grade math. After a few years, I began my own mathematics company for grades 6-8. After a few years, I began to branch out and now create materials for grades 3-11. I am now also teaching at the college level which has given me a unique perspective on 3rd Grade - College which I know will help me create even stronger products.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in a hands-on approach with activities, puzzles, projects, and plenty of opportunities for students to collaborate with each other.
