Product Description
You asked, and we listened! Because of the success customers had with our 3rd & 4th grade STAAR Wars Task Cards, we had multiple 5th grade teachers contact us, asking us to create 5th grade sets, too. So, we’re happy to finally introduce the first set of our new STAAR Wars 5th Grade Reading Task Cards!!

Don’t wait until right before the end-of-year STAAR or other state assessment to get your students ready for the test! Begin preparing them the 1st 6 weeks of school with our 1st set of STAAR Wars 5th Grade Reading Task Cards!

This product includes 24 task cards aligned with 5th grade reading TEKS and common core standards for reading/literature/informational text/foundational skills and are perfect for assessing where your students are and where you need to go for the next 6 weeks of school.

These rigorous, higher-level thinking questions are made in STAAR format, have multiple choice answers, and address these skills:
•Author’s purpose
•Character roles, functions, relationships, & conflicts
•Context clues
•Describing the phenomena explained in origin myths from various cultures
•Determining meaning of English words derived from Latin, Greek, or other linguistic roots & affixes
•Drawing conclusions
•Explaining different forms of third-person points-of-view in stories
•Genres – drama, informational, myth, poetry, procedural, realistic fiction
•Making inferences using textual evidence
•Rising action, foreshadowing
•Sensory details, imagery, figurative language
•Sound effects – onomatopoeia
•Story elements (character, plot, point-of-view, problem, solution, theme/lesson/moral)
•Structure & elements of poetry
•Summarize & paraphrase texts
•Using a dictionary/glossary/thesaurus
•Using context to determine or clarify the meaning of unfamiliar or multiple meaning words

Instructions are included for 4 methods of review: task cards review in centers/groups/pairs/individuals, a SCOOT game, Quiz-Quiz-Trade, and a "Be the Teacher" game, but these cards can be used in a variety of other ways to meet your needs.

We hope you enjoy them, and we’d love to hear your feedback! :)
