Through this sorting activity, students will understand the vocabulary used on STAAR to better understand how to answer questions. This activity is broken into 2 parts.
Set A includes 20 STAAR question cards that students need to determine if they are finding the main idea, summary, or author's purpose.
Set B includes 28 question cards that students need to determine if they are making an inference, finding the meaning of a word, or text evidence.
A sorting mat is included for both sets.
After this activity, you should have students reflect by sharing their observations.
