Every year as state exam time approaches, I conduct three review sessions after school (of course I offer fabulous prizes to those who attend! Treats = motivation!), and I use these THREE PowerPoint presentations and worksheets for the sessions. Review sessions help to build skill, strategy, motivation, and excitement for Common Core State exams. My students use these strategies and I've seen growth and success every year!
These review sessions, games, and practice packets are directly geared towards the New York State ELA exam in grades 6-8, but are adaptable to other Common Core ELA exams. Each PowerPoint is editable!
Included in this bundle:
Three Power Point Presentations
Three Fun, Hands On Games
Three Practice Activities
Review Session One focuses on reviewing literary elements and author's purpose.
Session Two is focused on mastering the art of close reading, text based evidence, and making inferences.
Session Three reviews tips for writing extended response essays and short answers/constructed responses (I used examples modeled from the New York State Common Core tests).
Give your students the tools they need to succeed! Build confidence. Build skill. Build motivation.
Good test takers are students who have the strategies to approach a test with confidence. With this practice and training under their belts, your students will be on their way to success on Common Core exams!
