This pack is aligned to the STAR Early Literacy Assessment. This pack currently includes 22 activities for both reading and math. I have used this pack in my own classroom with success, and have made it into an independent center.
Mississippi teachers: This pack is MKAS aligned!
This pack can be printed double sided to make it self checking for most activities, all you need to do is laminate and cut it out!
This pack was created with student growth in mind. After taking the STAR test, you can log in to your school’s account and group your students by their score and print a report to see what skills they need to work on in order to grow. These skills were taken from these reports and activities have been created. The activities that are in this pack are mainly teacher directed, as the teacher needs to ask the questions, but some can then be altered to place into an independent center for students to practice once the directions have been explained.
Teacher tip: If your school allows you to, take the test yourself, or watch a student take the test! Some of the deficits that we found, were the way that the questions were being asked, as well as how the materials were presented. We took the test ourselves and watched students in order to take notes on the wording so that students could find the same answer being asked different ways.
This set is self checking and has the extra pages included, all you need to do is click to print double-sided for these activities.
I am not a proponent of teaching to a test, but once some of the basic skills, such as position words are taken care of, it gets into more difficult skills that allow students to grow in both reading and math.
