Each section is titled with the TEKS that are addressed along with various activities/questions to make sure your students are reviewed and ready for the STAAR test in May. The optional cover pages also provide an area for students to identify their strong TEKS and weak TEKS. It's important for students to understand the test and know what they need to work on prior to testing.

A modified version of each review packet is included. Word banks are provided when possible and an answer choice has been eliminated on multiple choice questions. The students who receive the modified version will still get all of the same answers as the regular version, so no additional answer key is needed.

A variety of methods for students to answer and prove their understanding of the material are included. Please look at each individual product for a closer look at what you will receive.

A complete teacher answer key is provided which will free up your time to be able to assist students and facilitate small group instruction or interventions, if necessary. Some ideas for how to best use this in your class are included.
