This product is designed to provide quick and teacher friendly PARCC like questions for students to practice with as they address common core standards and prepare for EOY PARCC tests.
This packet is week two for PARCC
End of Year (EOY) Test Prep.
The passage has a Lexile of 840.
It includes one passage with 2-3 A/B questions per day.
Total 26 questions/points available.
At teachers’ request, I included a lower level passage and more questions!
Questions continue to have rigor of 5th grade students unfamiliar with PARCC format of testing. (I used it with my 5th graders and some of them still struggle a little).
It includes a student answer key and complete set of
questions for teacher, with answers highlighted
(If you are one of us who has trouble reading those answer keys).
All questions are aligned to CCSS Anchor Standards.
Please let me know your wants and needs!
After much feedback from teachers, I got requests for
shorter passages and more overall questions to use as bell work. This involves a Monday read, then daily questions.
SO- I shortened the passage and just included 2-3 per day.
Please let me know how this works for you!
I think it is great for close reading to demonstrate how students need to go back to the text to locate answers and get very familiar with the passage structure and format.
I designed this product to use with my students between
Phase I and II of the PARCC test. .It is my sincere hope that
you and your students become more prepared/comfortable
with the PARCC format of testing.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I would love to hear
exactly how your students respond to the passages, or regarding any of my products! I welcome suggestions for improvement and
suggestions or recommendations for specific topics for passages or
products for use with grades 3-7. Thank you again, and best of luck
for you and your students with testing!
