This product contains 20 cards to be used for test prep. Each card has one mini-passage and a multiple-choice question where students are asked to read a dictionary entry and choose the definition that best fits the meaning of a word as it was used in the passage.
The mini-passages represent the many genres they are tested on and include: biography, poetry, fiction, drama, procedural and informational texts. The words were taken from a list of vocabulary words that are often seen in fifth and sixth grade basal literature and standardized tests. This is something that my students were tested on and struggled with this year. These cards are meant to give students repeated practice with these types of questions.
The cards are great to use in groups or with a partner, which makes this low-stress test prep. The product also includes a list of ideas, an answer sheet and an answer key. I hope you enjoy!
