As a Texas teacher, the products I make are designed around the standards for the state of Texas, known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and are carefully crafted to help students be successful on the Texas STAAR test. I use the challenge of the TEKS and released STAAR assessments as models to guide me when putting together lessons and materials for students. Thus, I am careful to post products that, in my judgment, address those standards. I am not affiliated in any way with these entities and any and all claims of alignment are my claims, not those of the groups behind the TEKS or STAAR test. Some of my TEKS-based products also address standards from other states, the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards), or Common Core and related standardized tests. For these products, I include the standards in the description. I am not affiliated with these entities and any claims of alignment are mine. Please contact me if you have questions.
