This packet contains six weeks of 5th grade ELA MCAS Vocab lists and six weeks of 5th grade Science and Math MCAS Vocab lists, all aimed at helping your 5th graders become more confident in using content based vocabulary. Coincidentally, these lists will also help them feel more confident going into their MCAS testing days.
There are also three vocab quiz templates I have used in the past and have had great success with. Please feel free to alter them to your class' needs, including point values. I've found that when I include point values, students at least attempt to try and answer the question.
There is a method to the madness of setting up MCAS Prep this way, I promise! The idea is that because you are addressing the terms in the most recent weeks before the test, it'll be fresh in their memories. For example, the first six weeks of prep are solely focused on ELA because ELA MCAS is the first MCAS they will take. After ELA MCAS is over, the lists focus on Math and Science because this is the next MCAS the students will be taking.
I hope you and your students find this packet successful!
