I have been scouring through 5th grade TEKS and comparing them to the last two STAAR tests (2017-2018). Did you know on the last two tests there were 10 questions dealing with money!!!!! That is crazy to me. Those questions can be the difference in pass or fail a STAAR test.
Here is some testing prep materials you can use either as you approach STAAR or when you finish a unit to see if what was taught aligns with what our students will see on the STAAR test.
I have always liked task cards because there is so much you can do with them, so these little units will be task card like. But you can use them anyway you choose. You can use all 20 questions in a test format if you like!
Use at stations, as exit tickets, or just put them on the board and check for understanding. Or do what I do, cut them out and hang them in the hallway and turn them lose.
There are 20 STAAR like questions. Right now the unit is only $2.50.
SUPER BONUS!!!! I am going to reformat the task cards into a scavenger hunt. And guess what it will still only cost you $2.50. So it will have the task cards plus the scavenger hunt.
SO…when I add the scavenger hunt, using the same questions, final price will be $5 dollars. But guess what! (dude standing in the back says what) It still will only cost you $2.50 because you jumped in on the front end…
