When I taught second grade, our Super Star Skills started out as a two month test prep. The next year we spread them out over the course of the year. Having a pre test and post test with clear goals really motivated our kiddos.
I’ve been working on turning those skills tests into packets for you. If you liked my Compound Word Freebie, each packet is like that.
My latest packet is for contractions. While contractions is more of a first grade skill, so many of our ELLs struggled with them. We started the year reviewing them and found it increased their running record scores.
This packet contains:
•A two page pretest and a two page posttest
•A contraction game with two options.
•A contraction sort
•Directions for the games and packet use.
•A contraction poster
•Printouts for motivating students including a graph
This is the seventh in a series of Super Star Review Skills. I’m so happy that something that started with my team has helped out so many classes.
