What educators are saying

I used this with my class to review for the MSTEP. My class found it very helpful and said that it helped prepare them for the test!
This is an awesome resource to practice prior to benchmarks or STAAR! Also, it was an easy set up: just print, laminate and cut. Any 4th grade Texas teacher needed a Reading review, this is it!

With the implementation of the new ELAR TEKS this year, you need a resource to help your students prepare for the test. For school years 2019-20 and 2020-21, students will only be assessed on overlap standards (those standards that are included in both the 2009 TEKS and 2017 TEKS) per TEA; this resource is aligned to those overlap standards, and it will be updated if necessary in 2021 for the 2021-22 school year when more 2017 standards are assessed.

We firmly believe that the best test prep starts in August. To effectively review, you should begin preparing students during the 1st 6 weeks of school, and our favorite way to test prep is with our STAR READY Task Cards©!

This 1st set of STAR Ready 4th Grade Reading Task Cards includes 24 task cards aligned with 4th grade reading TEKS and common core standards and are perfect for assessing where your students are and where you need to go for the next 6 weeks of school.

  • Creating mental images
  • Determining the meaning of words using root words & affixes
