- Table of Contents

The reading skills/concepts that are assessed when using our preparation materials are as follows:

main idea and supporting details...understanding sequence...cause and effect...comparing and contrasting...making predictions...drawing conclusions and making inferences...finding word meaning in context...author's purpose...recalling facts and details...describing characters....inferring character traits...determining theme...describing setting...summarizing...recognizing point of view...genre identification...recognizing and interpreting figurative language…similes…metaphors…personification…speaker identification...rhyme...rhythm...rhyming patterns ....lines...stanzas....alliteration…onomatopoeia…various poetry genres and more!

All paragraphs are numbered for text dependent questions that require the student to "look back" and analyze a particular aspect of the passage. Each short response question requires text-based support by citing details from the passage.

Each non-fiction and fiction passage is followed by 8 multiple-choice questions and 1 short response question (for a total of 10 points that will be reflected on the student’s answer sheet).

Each poetry selection is followed by 8 multiple choice questions with a corresponding rubric for easy grading (also shown on the student’s answer sheet).

And a new feature we've added to our test prep…?
A compare/contrast essay question (with corresponding model essay to be used as an answer key) based upon 2 of our non-fiction passages.

Because we find "reading levels" to be quite subjective; these materials can be used for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Take a look at a sample text in the preview, so that you can get an idea of the passages' difficulty level included in our bundle.

No matter what grade you use this for, one thing is for certain....your kiddos will gain invaluable experience with the type of questioning that is coming their way on this year's standardized exams.
