In this product you will find 24 task cards designed to look like the vocabulary type questions on the STAAR test. There is a short nonfiction excerpt that contains the vocabulary word. Some of the words are very difficult words that need to looked up in the dictionary, some words can be determined by context clues, some words are multiple meaning words.
The topics used in the excerpts include: Pokémon Go, Dragonball Z, Civil Rights Movement, the Titanic, sea turtles, Selena Gomez, fidget spinners and much more.
These task cards work great in stations. They can be completed independently or have students have rich discussion and work in pairs.
There are times that I will copy a half page of task cards and use them as warm ups or even as exit tickets.
I hope these task cards help prepare your students to answer these types of readiness standard questions.
