I have updated this product to align with the NEW TEKS!! I will continue to update all the old packs as well!! Hope you enjoy!!
These are problems based on our state test (STAAR) they have really helped my class get ready. We took the released STAAR test this Feb. as our benchmark. My two classes (consisting of all ESL students) had 77% passing, this was even higher then our GT classes. I truly think these word problems get them use to the STAAR's way of wording problems. The same group of students took the real STAAR and had 84% passing. 70% of the 84 were passing with a 70 or higher. These problems have really helped.
With the new standards I also used these products this past school year in a Two Way Dual Program and had 97% passing the 4th grade Math STAAR according to the old passing standards. I also had 86% of those passing were above a 70, and 16 out of 34 were commended (above a 90).
