PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are a TON of acronym's out there to help students be successful on multiple choice test questions. I like to use RUBIES. My kiddos draw little rubies on the front of their test to remind them to use their strategies. You can extend this mini lesson in many ways! You could go on a rock hunt and dye rocks red to make your very own rubies. I split my students into groups and each group illustrated a different strategy on a poster that hung in our classroom all year. The opportunities are endless.

So what is it? RUBIES is an acronym that breaks down into six different strategies.

R-Read the text, Read the questions, Re-read
U-Underline the question
B-Box important words
I-Inspect text features
E-Eliminate and Explain wrong answers
S-Select the best answer and Show why it's right

This powerpoint models my thinking on how I use RUBIES on one test question using an excerpt from a text. The powerpoint uses animations on click to help guide your students. I suggest going over the power point before introducing to your students so that you are familiar with the flow.

I hope that you enjoy! Please let me know if you have any questions at all!
