This resource is used in conjunction with the children’s book, The Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco. The book can be used in a variety of ways (i.e. read aloud, station, read-to-someone, etc.). We have created multiple formats in order to implement STAAR-like questions into the classroom with this book.
The formats included are:
Task cards with multiple choice answers
Task cards for open-ended response both written and/or oral
Open-ended worksheet – great way to include writing with literature!
We have created two sets of mixed TEKS questions for you to use in your classroom. Each set has 4 questions. One set can be used during read aloud and whole group for guided instruction, while the second set can be placed in a station, used for independent practice, or even as a short assessment. We’ve even included all questions together as a quiz or more formal assessment.
This mixed set includes the following TEKS: 5.2A, 5.3Fig19D, 5.6A, 5.6B, 5.6Fig19D, 5.6Fig19E, 5.8A.
