If you are working on test prep, this Test Taking Tips Reading Passage and Activity for INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS will be lots of fun. Is it time for the end of the year state test? If so, this is a great way to get your kids talking about how to prepare for the test.
This pack includes a short close reading passage about basic test taking tips. The passage talks about things kids should be doing throughout the year, and things that kids should think about the night before and day of 'the test'.
Although you could use this any time of the year, it is probably most suitable to use a couple of days before your 'big' end of the year test.

---- I offer this SAME passage in two different formats. This particular passage is formatted for interactive notebooks. It is the exact same passage and similar questions just formatted differently from the full page version.
If you would like to purchase the one page passage with 9 text-based questions that go along with the passage, click HERE
. You can then read the description to see which format works best for you.
The passage is a half sheet, so it will work perfectly to glue sideways into an interactive reading notebook. Once glued into the interactive notebook, students can write their thinking out to the side of the passage.
In addition to the passage, there are three flippable activities (all printed on one sheet) for their notebook. One is on the definition of imperative (imperative to bubble properly), one focuses on drawing a picture on the plate of what a healthy breakfast might look like and tell about it, and the other focuses on 4 comprehension questions related to the text
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.
Good luck on your end of the year testing! I'm sure your kids will do great.
