PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Test Prep Literature Study: Are you looking for engaging test prep activities that are also aligned to Common Core Standards? If so, this is the unit for you! "Testing Miss Malarkey" is a delightful story about a teacher who helps prepare her class and she becomes increasingly frazzled as test time approaches. Although she tries to reassure students that "THE TEST" is not important, the atmosphere tells a different story. Children play Multiplication Mambo at recess, eat brain food in the cafeteria, and learn to meditate in gym. While they seem immune to the adult panic, the tension spreads to their parents who abandon bedtime stories for textbook drills and attend a PTA meeting with Dr. Scoreswell. In the end, the students outscore other districts and school returns to normal.

In this unit, students will:
--retell and sequence the story
--analyze characters
--make, revise and confirm predictions
--make text connections
--practice bubbling
--make test stress snowballs
--read a recipe to make Testing Trail Mix
--write a letter to Miss Malarkey, giving her test taking tip
--prepare a Testing To-Do list
--participate in extension ideas
