Thursday Tips for Teachers: Quick Daily Practice

It's Thursday! Time for another Test Prep Themed Tip!

Last week, I wrote about selecting your texts based on test item samplers to best support your kids. I know I struggle sometimes with creating text passages, but I still want to provide my students with quality texts to let them show their skills, even if they do have to take these tests.

This week's tips is how I break them down to make them more manageable for you and your students. When I was first teaching, I would give them the whole passage and then go over all the questions in one setting. Needless to say, they were burnt out and depressed over the strain of taking the tests and antagonizing over their wrong answers. 

When I was working with one of my mentee teachers, we came up with another way to make test prep more manageable. Instead of doing all the review on one day, we broke it up over the next four days so that she could incorporate test prep in small chunks, but still be able to teach her lessons. 

Prep Work:

Her prep work consisted of writing 8 questions for two writing passages. She used the same focus skills so she could measure their growth from the beginning of the week. 

On Monday, students take the whole passage and only review their answers for questions 1 and 2. This allows the teacher to record all of their data on how they did and prepare mini-lessons to support her students for the rest of the week. Writing her own questions allows her to work on the skill her students struggle with and prepare to lead mini-review lessons. 

Below is the sheet she gives to students to have them explain their thinking. They record their answers on Monday, so she can take the passages and answers, but the students still have access to their answers. This sheet is great because they can record their thinking and their metacognitive skills to think about their thinking.

When they take the second passage on Friday, they track their progress on individual trackers on how many they have gotten correct out of eight. This is just a simple way to invest your students in their growth.

All of these sheets are included in my FREEBIE STAR Tracker Packet. It also includes a sheet for students to track their mastery of specific learning objectives.

Hope this helps lighten your test prep!

Teach Idea Tuesday Link Up

This Tuesday I am linking up with Teach Junkie to share

I created Fluency Rings as a way to have students self monitor and keep track of what words they are not reading fluently. 

Students read the cards in partners and as one reads a word incorrectly, the other marks the words they do not read correctly. They ten add them to their ring. They must read the word from their ring correctly five times to remove it.

Simply cut out the cards (on colored paper for cuteness) and give stacks to students. They can practice these as time fillers, a center, or during guided reading work.

Fry's Sight Words Freebie!

Students love playing games. I love students learning from games. I love it so much that I created Fry Words Vocabulary Warm Up Folders, which are designed to help struggling readers master their sight words through small group tutoring and game play. In the non-profit I work for, many of the students read below their grade level and struggle with word recognition. I developed these materials as a way to supplement my program's resources, create continued accountability into which words students know, and to share resources with others who have students with the same struggles.

Below is an example of what the FREE sample looks like.

This folder contains:
o        1 lists of Fry Materials (words 1-25)
o      A list of 25 vocabulary words from Fry’s Word List per folder
o        A specific game with the words for that level
o        Student test page of the 25 words
o        Pre-Test/Post-Test and Assessment sheets of the 25 words
o        Blank activity cards in page protectors to be used with dry erase markers
o        5 pages of the vocabulary focus words of the week with example sentences

The best part of the files are the games! Each game is tailored to the specific words of the level. So not only do you get materials to print to assess student mastery, but you also get games that students can use to reinforce their thinking.

Classroom Use Ideas
o        Remediation
o        Guided Reading Centers
o        Vocabulary Centers

o        Partner Work

Below is an example of the wonderful games you can play

The only thing you need to play are game pieces and some may require the use of a die.

If you like what you see, head over to my store for the FREE sample of Fry Words. I know you'll be glad you did. :)

As always, let me know what you think and if you found it to be helpful!
