Looking for a reliable way to teach students to become better test takers? This reading comprehension (test taking strategy) will help students gain the knowledge they need to make test taking a breeze!
The strategy is called "My Nice Rat Can Play". Each word of the phrase lends itself to a different strategy the students can use to become proficient test takers.
Nice=Number the paragraphs
Rat=Read the selection twice
Can=Cover and Match
This power point provides step by step instructions and examples for each part of the strategy. It can be used with any reading text for any grade level.
The last two slides of the power point are step by step instructions for the cover and math portion of the strategy. There's an option of 2 on a page or 4 on a page. The cover and match pages can be cut out and laminated. They can be taped to a student's desk or they can have them out while taking the test to remember the steps involved.
This strategy has given my students the confidence they need to ace the test. Please feel free to ask questions.
