⭐This is a fun set of 14 low prep, STAAR test formatted games that cover the 3rd grade math readiness TEKS.⭐ STAAR prep can be complete drudgery, so I use these games in conjunction with released test items to maximize student engagement in preparation for the STAAR math test. I also know your time is valuable, so these are print-and-go games.
This is the English version of these games. The Spanish version is available HERE.
I created at least one game for each of the readiness TEKS, and two games for the TEKS that had too much content for just one game. I studied the released STAAR items from the past few years and the TEKS to create games that covered essential content and resembled STAAR test questions. I couldn’t be more excited about our test prep!
One added benefit of games over worksheets is the flexibility to use them time and time again. The games are built so that different combinations of numbers and problem stems will arise each time you play. Even if problems are repeated they offer students an opportunity to build fluency.
I am using these games in conjunction with the Practice STAAR test I created. Using the student data tool in that test, I can easily see which Readiness standards students have not mastered and use these games prescriptively with them at my small group table.
I also use my ⭐ FUN SPINNERS ⭐ with my games instead of paperclips!
