Twelve test prep tournaments will get your students ready for your state's standardized tests, district tests, and classroom tests.
Football, baseball, and tic-tac-toe game boards are included with specific directions for 12 tournaments.
The tournaments may be used for any grade and any subject, but you need to supply the questions you want your students to study. Go to the Internet to access your state's released questions of past standardized tests. Use questions from test prep booklets or your classroom textbooks. Purchase task cards at Teachers Pay Teachers. Write your own questions to review the skills you want your students to learn.
Students may review spelling words, vocabulary definitions, and important events in social studies in whole class tournaments or at a learning center. Students may work in cooperative groups to solve computation problems or word problems.
These tournaments work!
Last year, my students took the 2009 California Standards Test. When comparing my students' California Standards Test scores with me and how they had done the year before, one student went from Far Below Basic in second grade to Below Basic to Basic to Proficient with me in third grade and went up three levels. Three of my students went up two levels. Nine of my students went up one level. Three students stayed in their same level from second grade to third grade (one student was Proficient and stayed Proficient & two students were Advanced and stayed Advanced.) The final student in my class last year did not have a second grade test score, but scored Advanced in my class. I receive similar test scores each year.
