This product contains several activities that I used to prepare students for the AIR TEST.
Test Prep Meditation - Are you feeling stressed before testing? Well, so are the students! I chose to do this activity with my students because as state testing approached, I felt the anxiety of my students rising. I used this activity to help ease the angst that my students were feeling, help them build their own plan to prepare for testing, and to increase confidence as testing approached.
This one day activity helps students relax, refresh, and reset while making a constructive plan to prepare themselves for testing and help their classmates do the same.
If you use Google Classroom, this requires you to make a quick question in GC for your students to respond to. If you do not use Google Classroom, this activity can be done on paper by displaying the culminating question for students.
This can be used with any grades as a no-stress pre-testing activity!
Air Test Prep - Build Stamina - This activity makes the process of reading fun and engaging! Before I started using this relay race activity, my students were not motivated to read texts I chose for them. Now, they beg me to play this game often to build reading stamina!
This game can be played with any article but I also provide links to great resources to find challenging, engaging, and interesting articles on many reading levels with a variety of topics.
Building reading stamina is essential for student success on state assessments! This products helps your students build reading stamina while having fun!
Google Classroom Skills Assessment - The rationale for using this product comes from the need to identify what skills my students were struggling most BEFORE taking their state assessment. This product uses the formerly released AIR Tests to assess the current skills of students.
To use this activity, I created two Google Quiz activities for students from the Released AIR Test Assessments. For many of the questions, I added a video for students to watch so they could sharpen their skills on a standard before answering the question. This helped remediate understanding on the skills as students worked.
• Each Google Quiz can be edited to fit the needs of your students.
• After you purchase, just add the activity to your Google Classroom!
