**Updates to this product as of 4/6/2015 - Had a typo and answer choice incorrect! SO sorry for the inconvenience.
This product is something I use daily with my students to prepare them for STAAR related questioning. Included in this product are:
STAAR Warm ups
20 small passages with 1-2 questions per each.
STAAR Test Taking Strategies
I put three anchor charts for teacher and student on how to teach students to break apart the passages to answer the questions asked for category 2.
STAAR Question Stem Cubes
This is probably my FAVORITE activity. Requires real critical thinking of the students. Students will have a teacher given passage, I use a ton from Read Works, chapter in a book, etc., students will be in groups of 2-4 and will read the passage then roll the cube. The cubes provide question STEMS which require the students to create their own question for what they just read to ask their partner.
STAAR Academic Word Wall Vocabulary
I have included SEVERAL academic vocab cards for you to review with your students. This is what I now have on my word wall daily and create a quick summative assessment randomly to test my students on meanings.

-- Answer sheet and recording sheet are included
Please be advised. This is for 3rd grade TEKS. Could be used with lower 4th graders, or in preparation for 2nd graders.
