Are your kids tired of the same old drill and kill test prep? Try a different approach with these STAAR Reading Test Prep Task Cards for 6th and 7th. This resource will put students in charge of developing responses to question stems found on current STAAR testing materials. As a teacher and freelance test question writer, I understand the amount of insight gained from working with the test format, question stems, and developing plausible answer choices and distractors. *Students do not need to be professional test writers to benefit from this activity. They will learn to identify key elements in the question stems by working with them and gain a better understanding of answer choices and distractors as they write their own to go with already provided stems. This activity empowers students to take charge of their learning and is a welcomed break from the same STAAR prep task cards used for tutorials and remediation.
One set of direction cards
One set of blank response cards
Seven different selections with STAAR question stems
Suggested answer key for all questions
The task cards are perfect for in-class instruction, remediation, or tutorial groups. The shorter length of selections makes it easy for students to finish in a regular 40-45 minute class period or tutoring session.
