Many of you have been requesting a STAAR review or practice for this week before the STAAR test on May 8th & 9th. I have attached a review that you can use with your child at home. If you want to see what the test has looked like in the last 2 years you can go to the TEA website and click on RELEASED STAAR TEST and find the older versions for 3rd grade math and reading; however keep in mind we have completed these with your child in school already.
As we approach the last 5 days before the STAAR test it is important to do the following:
1) Stress to your child the importance of doing their best, taking their time, and SHOWING THEIR WORK/STRATEGIES.
2) Don't stress your child out over this test! Even if they fail the STAAR test they can still go to 4th grade! Anxiety will not make them perform better. Just encourage them that they are ready...BECAUSE THEY ALL ARE!
3) Get a good meal and a full nights sleep the night before the test and a big breakfast the morning of, to fuel their brain power!
Dont hesitate to ask me if you have any questions or concerns about the STAAR test. I am so proud of all their hard work and the kids are ready!
