Looking for somthing that really makes a difference?
Have your students ever encountered words and vocabulary on tests that they don’t know or understand. Teachers know when it comes to standardized testing, we are not allowed to help or assist. By having and practicing these test phrases your students will have no problem when encountering this type of test vocabulary. The phrases not only help students practice words in context, they also help students to remember meanings as the word are used in phrases that help link word to meaning.
Pair these with The Test Words and Phrases (please see these as a separate item for sale) for the most benefit.
I use the Test Phrases on PowerPoint after my students have read the Test Words and Phrases, but the PowerPoint can be used by itself. I let my students take turns being the “Clicker” and they love when it’s their turn.
Repetition breeds familiarity, so practice them often. I have found that when testing time comes around, I am no longer asked questions that I am not allowed to answer. The students have become familiar with these test words and phrases and know them. It's one of those things that really makes a difference.
