This is an Introductory Bell Work for Beginning of the Year 3rd Graders to prepare them for their upcoming STAAR test. I would recommend using this in mid-late October to introduce students to STAAR style question stems. This can also be used as a tutoring or RtI resource.
This resource was originally designed as “Bell Work” or “Morning Work”. You may choose to use it as “Bell Work” or an “Exit Ticket” to review certain TEKS. Each page contains a short reading (poetry, expository text, diary entry, advertisements and fiction) and 1 – 3 questions that are TEKS based. All answers are multiple choice A-C. I specifically set up each question with only 3 answer choices so that students would be successful and could finish in a short period of time. You can choose to project it on your smart board or you can print individual sheets for each student.
