Test Prep Vocabulary Bundle
This test preparation packet practices vocabulary questions found on standardized tests. This set practices those types of questions that ask the student to choose the words that provide context Clues for the meaning of a given word. Included in the packet are fifteen paragraphs (five pages with three questions on each) with context Clues from the paragraph to help define a word found in each paragraph.
When my students find these types of questions, I suggest they underline “help the reader understand the meaning of ______”, then read each answer stem followed by that statement, carefully considering if those words help make the meaning clearer. My students also write “italics” by words in italics to help them remember which strategy to try.
I plan to use these sheets one per week for the five weeks before our STAAR test. This way they will have recurring practice of the skill.
This format is definitely “no prep”. It is copy and go. Or even better, just make one copy to complete under the document camera or just project the product page on your whiteboard and have students write on it!
An additional format is included with 2 answer sheets (one asks the students to explain their thinking in addition to giving their answer). This format can be used either as a scavenger hunt or as task cards.
I may have the students complete both formats – one over the course of five weeks and one all at once at the end.
This product is for grades 3 – 5.
