This product is something I use daily with my students to prepare them for STAAR related questioning. Included in this product are:
12 small passages with 2 questions each for
Wacky Words - Similar to MadLibs
These passages require students to fill in the blanks for the TEK standards 3.4a-c
20 Task Cards
These task cards are worded in the same format as STAAR and requires critical thinking.
Academic Vocabulary Cards
Multiple word wall cards for the academic vocabulary used in these TEKs!
TEK standards included:
(4) Reading/Vocabulary Development. Students understand new vocabulary and use it when
reading and writing. Students are expected to:
(A) identify the meaning of common prefixes (e.g., in-, dis-) and suffixes (e.g., -full, -
less), and know how they change the meaning of roots;
(B) use context to determine the relevant meaning of unfamiliar words or distinguish
among multiple meaning words and homographs;
(C) identify and use antonyms, synonyms, homographs, and homophones
- Answer sheets and recording sheets are also included as well as an introduction sheet.
I have included blank task cards without the TEK standard on them so you can use them for any state standard.
Please be advised. This is for 3rd grade TEKS. Could be used with lower 4th graders, or in preparation for 2nd graders.
This is an ongoing bundle of units.
The first unit, this one, hits Category 1 for 3rd grade ELAR.
The second unit, due out in a week. Will hit Category 2
The third unit, hopefully about 2-2.5 weeks will hit Category 3
