Using Task Cards for Test Prep!

Next week we will be taking the PASS test.  This is our state standardized test.  I wanted to do something different with my students to help them to review for the test.  I also wanted to do something that would allow them to review multiple skills at one time.  Today my students worked on Math Stations: Review Test Prep Task Cards.  Using these cards, my students were able to rotate to five stations and practice a different math skill at each station.  While students were working at the stations, I was able to work with a small group of students who needed additional help in one or more of the stations.  I really enjoy using task cards and my students do, too!  They enjoy having the freedom to move around to various stations and to work on different skills at one time!  You can swing by my TpT store to pick up a copy of these task cards if you would like to try them out with your class!

I Have Who Has Science Review

We have just finished our unit of study on Matter.  My students absolutely love using "I Have Who Has" as a way to review.  It requires students to use active listening and it forces them to really think about the content!
