This is a TEKS centered resource. While others may be “TEKS-aligned,” they often cover Common Core standards as well. My Texas specific resources cover the TEKS and nothing but the TEKS, so that teachers don’t have to spend additional time sorting through what to use and what not to use. I know how precious each and every school day is; there is no time to waste. As with all of my resources, it is designed with STAAR in mind. I have read through and studied the supporting information for the TEKS from TEA as well as all of the released STAAR tests and sample questions for the new TEKS. I have designed this unit to address everything your 4th graders should know about fractions to be prepared for STAAR and to be successful in 5th grade and beyond.
