EACH WEEK of the 4-A-Day STAAR Test Prep includes a collection of 20 questions that are in a test format to help students practice strategies to help them be successful on the STAAR assessment in 4th Grade. This entire bundle has a total of 160 QUESTIONS!!!!
I created this series of materials to be used as a Morning Work or Bellwork assignment for the 8-12 weeks before the STAAR test. However, it can be used in a variety of ways to meet your needs including for intervention.
Each day (Monday-Friday) has 4 questions over different student expectations. Throughout the weeks, different standards will be rotated in the boxes.
In the preview, you will see the TEKS that are rotated through the weeks in the boxes for each day. In the 8 weeks, Readiness Standards will be questioned more than the Supporting Standards. The preview also explains how I use it in my classroom.
There is a weekly tracking sheet called a Blackout Score Sheet and a 6-Weeks tracking sheet called a Progress Tracking Sheet. Students get to track their own progress and it helps them set goals for themselves. There is also a link to a spreadsheet to track your students' progress through Google Sheets.
The TEKS included in Week 1 are in the Preview. This page is called the “Blackout” sheet.
The Blackout Sheet helps me and the students know which standards they still need practice on. I will use this data and other assessment data to plan my intervention groups as well as to create review lessons for intervention.
Many times, at the end of the week, I have students put their answers into a Google Form also to help me track the entire class’s progress, so I know concepts I need to review with students during intervention or in class.
Please download the preview to see the types of questions, the trackers, and the TEKS rotation from week to week. If you have any questions, please let me know.
