The current common core tests are NOT kid friendly, at least what I have seen on our state interim and practice tests. Obviously, forbidden to see the real ones, which I have not. But I can still about guarantee this is one of the best if not thee best test prep packet for common core state tests you will find. I put these together throughout the past few years having seen the mistakes my students in Inglewood, CA were making on their interim and practice state tests. I have helped students do far better and have seen excellent test results based on these strategies. I am confident if you have your students practice these strategies, they will do very well.
Another tip: I did this closer to testing, but I had students in groups and tested them on the strategies. For example, "Show me the strategy for answering this short answer question?" Then I'd give a point to the groups that showed the strategy.
Literally, this resource is priceless as we all know how important (sadly) the emphasis is on state test scores. I want you students and school to do well. But I can't just give this away even though my preview shows everything. Please purchase if the preview appeals to you. Don't just take the strategies freely. It is very much worth the $4.00 price, and really, again priceless considering how much this will help you and your students.

I have worked very hard to develop these unique strategies that will save teachers a lot of time and effort and greatly benefit your students, plus the profits I make from TPT are helping me start my own school for under-served students in Los Angeles: Generations Legacy.
