Test Prep / Spiral Review and movement! My kids are so bogged down right before testing to I took the materials I used last year for test prep and made it a contest and added some movement. Attached is the score card I gave them. You can access the PARCC practice tests for all grades here: https://parcc.pearson.com/practice-tests/english/
I use the PARCC paper-based practice test. I have found this works no matter what standardized assessment your students will take. For grade 9, there are 10 passages with 37 questions total. I omitted the essay questions as I just didn't have enough time for them to work through that.
I printed off enough copies of 7 of the passages, that left 23 questions for them to answer. I let the students work in groups of 3 to work through the passages. I made 7 "stations" around my classroom and one in my office (I have 6 groups of tables in my room, so this left one station for students to rotate through in case they got done early. I would suggest having one extra, this reduces the congestion of students waiting for other groups to finish). At each station, groups had to read through the passage and annotate, all using a different color marker. Then, students had to answer the paired questions.
Students had to turn in their answer sheets to me each day and have me sign off if for some reason they changed an answer. I rewarded the person with the most correct answers with lunch, and each student got extra credit points for their number of correct answers. The conversation between students "breaking down" the questions was amazing. And the little kick of extra credit really inspired them to work diligently.
My kids got this done in about 3 days of 50 minute class periods. Expect this to be hectic the first day, until they get the hang of things.
