3rd Grade Reading STAAR Test Prep - Bingo Game

If I have to make my students take an extremely hard test that is above their 3rd grade reading level, then I am going to try and make it as fun as possible.

I worked all weekend using the terminology found on previous reading tests. I realized last year that many of my students had trouble just reading the question and trying to figure out what it was asking.

I made this Bingo game for them.

Last year I made flashcards for them, but the STAAR test was quickly approaching. This year I am prepared!

If you are a Texas teacher, then check this Bingo game out at Teacher's Pay Teachers. I promise I made it cheap!

4 Types of Sentences

This year I have really begun using anchor charts. I know, teachers have used them for years and I'm just now getting on the bandwagon. Most times I scour Pinterest and then copy from the ones posted online. I normally NEED inspiration and then I can create it.

BUT, this time I used my own little brain to make one... SEE. Isn't it cute!

I always use the "Land of Tive" story to teach the 4 different kinds of sentences and I needed a visual to go with the story. This is what I made. Note, I am NOT an artist or claim to be one, but my class is always impressed and that is what counts. Right?!
