Powerful Test-Taking Strategies
If you know me or follow my blog, you know I'm not a fan of worksheets or pages and pages (or even one page for that matter) of test-prep materials, commercial or otherwise. However, like Lucy Calkins, I do believe in setting kids up for success and teaching them strategies to do their best and capture all they know on standardized tests.
I created the original file in Notebook software for the Smartboard, and you can download that here if you'd rather have the notebook file (which you can manipulate and remix to suit your needs)....or you can download a pdf version below from my Slideshare account. Feel free to share this with your students, their parents, your team or your school.
