On to the stations...
1.) Listening I totally forgot to take a picture of that one. Anyway, the state releases the listening passages (except last year's because now it's Top-Secret) along with the questions. I had students take turns reading the passage out loud. Meanwhile, they took turns recording the GAP notes on the white board. They then answered the three short answer questions.
2.) Context Clues (with teacher)
3.) Review of Practice Test
|yes! That top one does say just "minus one"!!!|
You can find out how I repurposed CandyLand here. Anyway, I used this vocab practice cards which were pretty challenging for my kiddos as the questions. Does anyone else use this brand of cards? It was still tricky for some of them!
5.) Mimio Game Using the Mimio (basically a device that makes your white board a SMART Board, I found a review game for Main Idea on Quia. The kids, naturally, LOVE this station.
6.) Would You Rather...?
7.) Author's Purpose/Too-To-Two Folder Games These are two games I found in blog-land. I made them and set them up for the kids to play as review.
8.) Ants in the Pants Comprehension I made this little center:
So in short, that's how I made Test Prep Centers! We will be doing several more of these rotations in the coming 2 weeks before Spring Break and ultimately, The Test.
