First up, we have the warm-up activity. These quick exercises, completed in the first 10 minutes of class, set the tone for the day and ensure your students are reviewing key concepts right from the start.


Next, we move into the whole class mini-lesson. Here, we work through passages and questions together, reinforcing strategies and discussing common pitfalls. It’s a collaborative learning experience that will leave your students feeling confident and prepared.


Then, it’s time for the activity portion of the class. We’ll mainly focus on using practice tests, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry passages with STAAR-like questions. Plus, we’ll sprinkle in some fun activities like mystery pictures and PowerPoint games to keep your students engaged and motivated.


Finally, we wrap up each class with an exit ticket. This gives your students the opportunity to independently demonstrate their understanding and readiness for STAAR-level questions. It’s the perfect way to tie everything together and ensure that no stone is left unturned in their preparation.
